Prescribed fires

begin for Wenatchee River Ranger District

The Wenatchee River Ranger District is ready to implement its fall prescribed burning program. There will be a series of several prescribed broadcast fire burns beginning in early fall and continuing into early winter, depending upon conditions.

Broadcast burning is a managed activity where fire is applied generally to most, or all, of an area within well-defined boundaries. It is a tool used for reduction of fuel hazards. The targeted prescribed burn units are located within the Lake Wenatchee area, beginning in areas off Beaver Valley Highway and Chiwawa Loop Road. 

Hunters and recreationists are advised to avoid these areas during prescribed fire operations.
