A lightning strike started the Jolly Mountain Fire on August 11, 2017. The fire continues to burn in the Cle Elum Ranger District of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest and on or near land managed by the Washington Department of National Resources and The Nature Conservancy. The fire is being managed for full suppression although fire managers anticipate that it will continue to burn until a season-ending precipitation event occurs in the region.

As of September 20th, new updates will occur only as needed due to significantly decreased fire activity.
