LEAVENWORTH — Cougar Creek Fire-related evacuation in the Entiat area were downgraded Friday as fire crews, wind and weather reduced the threat to the communities east of the fire.

Evacuation notices were lifted on Entiat River Road below mile marker 16.5. The area past mile marker 16.5 is now at a Level 1 evacuation notice — be aware — rather than the previous Level 2 evacuation advising homeowners to be ready to leave.
