Bugg Road Fire: Crews made significant progress on the fire near Tonasket, which has been downgraded in size to 785 acres due to better mapping on Tuesday. About 200 firefighters are working on containment.

Chiwaukum Creek Fire: Fire crews have good containment of the 11,000-acre fire at its northern edges, but are still struggling to contain it to the south. The fire is growing slowly to the south and in Tumwater Canyon, but the progress was slowed considerably by rain and cooler temperatures on Tuesday.

Highway 2 from Coles Corner to Leavenworth remains closed with no estimate for reopening.

Kelly Mountain Fire: All firefighters have been pulled off the fire because of expected heavy rains. The fire is holding at 124 acres and 30-percent containment.

Duncan Fire: The fire is moving slowly downhill toward the Entiat River and 14 recreational homes. The homes have been wrapped with protective materials, and firefighters on Tuesday continued to set up sprinklers to protect the structures. Trees are also being cut in the Shady Pass area to create a fire break as a contingency in case the fire moves in that direction.

Lone Mountain 1 Fire: Now estimated at 1,700 acres, the fire is burning in steep, remote country northeast of Stehekin.
