Clockum Pass Fire Keeping Public at Bay

KNDO

The Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office is asking people to avoid recreation and travel in the Clockum Pass area as the Chelan County Fire, now estimated at 14,000 acres, has reached the northern border of Kittitas County.

The office is requesting that all travel and recreation be avoided in the Tarpiscan, from the Clockum Pass to the Columbia River.

Officials say the fire has reached the Columbia River just north of Spanish Castle and is continuing to move south. Reports from Chelan County also state the fire is working towards the Powerline Road on Clockum Pass.

The fire burning at the Colockum Pass area has not burned any more structures since two were destroyed on Saturday, but fire officials say about 40 homes and cabins are currently threatened.

Two minor injuries to firefighters have been reported. If you know of anyone camping in this area, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 509-925-8534.
