A new fire above Ingalls Creek is threatening homes in the Blewett Pass corridor.

Homes in the Hansel Creek area were put on Level 2 evacuation notice Sunday afternoon, meaning residents should be ready to leave quickly if the fire worsens. The Valley Hi residential area and homes along Ingalls Creek are on Level 1 notice, meaning they should be aware of the fire and make some preparations if it moves closer.

Helicopters were dumping water on the Hansel Fire Sunday evening.
