Access to Lake Chelan remains open as firefighters continue to battle flames from two major fires in Wenatchee, located in south Chelan County. As of 9:00am on Monday, June 29th, the Sleepy Hollow Fire has burned approximately 3,000 acres and 28 homes have been destroyed. No lives have been lost and no reported injuries to civilians.
“Our thoughts are with Wenatchee residents and firefighters today as they take the brunt of the season’s first wildfires,” says Chamber Executive Director, Mike Steele. “This is a good reminder for all coming to celebrate the 4th of July in Lake Chelan and the surrounding areas this weekend. With the warm temperatures and dry conditions, we ask all residents and visitors to take extra caution when participating in the festivities and to please refrain from using any personal fireworks.”
Lake Chelan remains accessible from the south via US-97 and US-97A. All business are open and welcoming visitors. The air quality in the Lake Chelan Valley remains clear.
