First Creek Fire Evacuation Level Change
The Chelan County Sheriff’s office has upped the current evacuation from Level 1 to Level 2 for residents in the Granite Creek and First Creek; due to the First Creek fire. Residents are asked to keep monitoring media reports, Inciweb or contacting the joint information center at 509-664-9374 or 509-664-9353. Today will be a fluid situation and patience and communications are asked of those involved.
There has been no change in the evacuation levels for any other areas, including those near Wenatchee proper.
Level 1, 2, and 3 Evacuation Status is akin to a “Ready, Set, Go” level of evacuation notices with Level 1 asking residents to be ready to evacuate if conditions change, Level 2 means residents should be set to go at a moment’s notice, Level 3 means authorities are advising residents to evacuate because their homes are in imminent danger (under Level 3, residents will not be allowed to return to their homes until fire danger decreases).
