ENTIAT — Big plumes have been visible from the Duncan Fire off the Entiat River Road this afternoon, but a fire spokesman said no additional homes are threatened by the fire, which is moving toward a large scar from a 2004 fire.

They just flew that, and it’s growing quite a bit to the northwest of where it had been, up into the Crow Creek drainage, toward Silver Ridge,” said spokesman Bob MacGregor. That’s because it’s now burning in heavy bug-killed timber, which created the large plumes of smoke. MacGregor said no additional homes are threatened by today’s growth.

Firefighters have prevented the blaze from crossing the Entiat River Road, and are hopeful that the fire can be held at the divide between Entiat and Chelan. He said there is also a shaded fuel break along Shady Pass Road, and if it goes north, it will run out of fuel.
