LAKE WENATCHEE — Firefighters have been sent to a new fire burning in the Chiwaukum Creek drainage of the Wenatchee River Ranger District.

The 50-acre fire is burning in heavy brush and timber, located about three miles south of Coles Corner.

Two fire crews are responding, and additional firefighters and air support have been ordered.

The fire is burning up a ridge in extremely steep terrain.

Smoke from the fire is visible from Leavenworth and Wenatchee.
