CHELAN — The 25-Mile Creek Fire, burning near the end of the pavement on South Shore Road, was 100 percent contained by noon today.

It was expected to be 100 percent controlled by 6 p.m. Sunday, said fire spokesman Rick Acosta said.

That fire has burned 240 acres. It began on private land and the cause is under investigation.

All recreational Forest Service land and Shady Pass Road are closed and are on Level 3 evacuation, said Sgt. Jerry Moore with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office Saturday afternoon. Shady Pass Road is open to residents. All the homes in the area are on Level 1 evacuation, which means residents should be aware of the situation and may be asked to leave. The campground at 25-Mile Creek is open.

In other fire news, a blaze on Highway 17, about seven miles south of Bridgeport burned about 1,000 acres. Sparks from a wheel coming off a vehicle started the brush fire, which was reported at 12:23 p.m. Friday and was contained Friday night. No structures were damaged.
