Chiwaukum Creek Fire: Highway 2 between Leavenworth and Coles Corner is expected to reopen at 8 p.m. Sunday (July 27). Traffic will be escorted by pilot car, so drivers should expect delays. The fire stands at just under 11,000 acres with 25 percent containment as crews strengthen fire lines on the north and east perimeters. Evacuation notices along Coulter Creek, between Nason Creek and Coles Corner, have been lowered from Level 3 to Level 1. Four structures — three cabins and one outbuilding — in the area have been destroyed by the blaze, fire officials reported Saturday.

Mills Canyon Fire: Now at 95 percent containment, this blaze continues to be watched carefully by fire crews, who are wary of the remaining 5 percent burning in rugged terrain. The fire has scorched 22,571 acres near Entiat.

Lone Mountain 1 Fire: Air operations increased Friday with four helicopters assisting ground crews on the 1,700-acre fire northeast of Stehekin. Also, more radio equipment was installed to improve communications between firefighters, Stehekin and the heli-base in Winthrop. Stehekin village, Rainbow Falls and the lakeshore trail remain open to the public. For safety, officials have closed the Boulder Creek Trail in the Stephen Mather Wilderness and lands east of the fire area in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.
