Chelan, WA Management of the Wolverine, First and Chelan Complex fires returned to local Forest Service Ranger Districts and the Southeast Washington Department of Natural Resources last week. Fire crews and equipment are focused on suppression repair efforts, fixing damage caused during fire suppression activities. Fire crews and heavy equipment are utilized on disturbed areas to speed up recovery and revegetation. Dozer and hand lines are filled in and covered with natural materials, and water bars and drain dips are installed on slopes to slow surface runoff and erosion.

Smoke will be visible in the interior areas of the fires until they receive significant precipitation. Although smoke will be visible, the fires are not expected to grow.
