Brief Fire Update 10-2-2022

White River (& Irving Peak)
News - 10/02/2022

With temperatures being approximately 10 degrees warmer than average this coming week, fire season is still carrying on into October.

Fire crews are actively engaged in suppressing the White River/Irving Peak fire. Containing spot fires outside of containment lines remains a top priority on the incident. Firefighters are locating and containing spot fires promptly and utilizing helicopters for water drops as necessary. Firefighters have also installed sprinkler systems around structures as a means to protect them from the fire by preventing any embers from establishing spot fires.

Additionally, firefighters will be conducting a firing operation today and tomorrow along the 311 and 6502 roads to reinforce containment lines. This will prevent the unwanted spread of the fire to the west and south. New resources, including an Interagency Hotshot Crew, are arriving to replace those that have reached the end of their 14-day assignment.

People can expect to see increased smoke which will likely drift to the northwest, but some residual smoke may linger in low lying areas.

Closure orders are still in effect and remain unchanged. The Little Wenatchee River Road and others are closed. Closure orders are posted on this site under the 'Closures' tab.
