Smoke Update
Released: 09/26/2022
 Smoke from the White River, Irving Peak, and Minnow Ridge fires will continue to impact local communities. Smoke dispersal is heavily influenced by weather and winds. The next few days will continue to be smoky, with some clearing Wednesday afternoon (9/28) through Friday due to a cold front moving into the area.
We have been getting lots of calls about the smoke impacting local communities from the White River, Irving Peak and Minnow Ridge fires burning 14-16 miles north and northwest of Plain, WA.  There was increased fire behavior on Monday and Tuesday due to the hotter and dryer weather, and we may see the fires become a bit more active this afternoon as temperatures increase.="margin-bottom:0in;background:white">
White River & Irving Peaks Fire Update MONDAY SEPTEMBER 19THFire updates will be occurring about once a week, or as conditions change. According to the latest infrared map showing where heat is present, the White River Fire is ¼ mile from the Windmill Lane cabins on Windmill Lane. The fire is slowly backing downhill towards the road. Firefighting resources are trying to clean up the fuels between the fire’s edge and their containment lines, but the weather hasn’t allowed them to do much of that recently.
