NCW — More than 100 victims of wildfires in Chelan and Okanogan counties spent Friday night in Red Cross shelters set up around the region.

Here’s the latest from Nicolle Lafleur, executive director of the Apple Valley and North Cascades chapters of the American Red Cross.

Current shelters are:

  • Chelan: Chelan High School, 215 W. Webster Rd.  Victims reported there this morning: 48
  • Omak: Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church, 328 N. Riverside. Victims reported there this morning: 55
  • Leavenworth: First Baptist Church – 429 Evans St. Victims reported there this morning: 1
  • Winthrop: Winthrop Barn Auditorium (opened Friday night), 51 N. Hwy 20. Victims reported there this morning: 4

The shelter at the Twisp grange, 344, W. 2nd. St., has been closed.

If possible, evacuating residents should bring:

  • Prescription and emergency medications
  • Foods that meet unusual dietary requirements
  • Identification and important personal documents
  • Extra clothing, pillows, blankets, towels, hygiene supplies and other comfort items
  • Supplies needed for children and infants, such as diapers, formula and toys
  • Special items for family members who are elderly or disabled
  • Note: Public health regulations do not permit pets in shelters. Trained assistance animals are permitted.

The Paschal Sherman Indian School, 25 Mission Rd., just outside of Omak, is making its dormitories available to victims of NCW wildfire, especially families who need longer-term lodging, Sgt. Dustin Best of the Colville Tribal Police said Saturday. The school has showers, bathrooms, about 60 rooms with beds. For more information call the school at 509-422-7584, or Tribal Police, 509-634-2472. This is not a Red Cross-sponsored shelter.
