LEAVENWORTH — Rain and cooler temperatures slowed the Eagle Fire overnight Thursday to give crews the upper hand in defending homes on the fire’s southern edge along Eagle Creek Road.

By this morning, strike teams had cleared brush and other flammables to create a 200-foot buffer to defend more than 60 homes and outbuildings beyond milepost 3 in the steep-sided valley. The effort allowed Level 3 evacuation warnings to be relaxed to Level 2 as of 8 a.m. today.
