Level 3 Evacuation in First Creek and Granite Falls Creek
Incident: Wenatchee Complex Wildfire
NEW LEVEL 3 EVACUATION NOTIFICATION FOR FIRST CREEK AND GRANITE FALLS CREEK AREAS
- Late Thursday afternoon a Level 3 evacuation notification was put into effect for all the residences in First Creek and Granite Falls Creek drainages located approximately 10 miles uplake from the town of Chelan. The First Creek Fire has moved into First Creek drainage. This Level 3 evacuation notification is primarily due to the "one-way-in and one-way-out" access to these two areas. Evacuation notices are being delivered by law enforcement officers.
This evacuation notification does not affect the town of Chelan or the south shore road. Visitors and recreationists can still access Lake Chelan and enjoy the amenities in the town of Chelan.
