On fires where the topography is steep (like the Tumwater Fire), a constant concern is that burning material will roll downhill and ignite unburned fuel. This can cause a number of problems, including material rolling outside of the containment line (particularly if the containment line is located mid-slope). In a burnout, firefighters work in narrow strips, lighting fire in order to reduce the unburned fuel between the main fire and the containment line. It is a slow and methodical process that works when the conditions are just right. One firefighter yesterday referred to it as "dragging" fire down the hill - that is a pretty good description. Once completed, this burnout will reduce the risk of rolling material igniting unburned fuel below and provide a more secure containment line. Folks in the vicinity of the Tumwater Fire will continue to hear chainsaws as crews prepare for the burnout. Should conditions be favorable and the burnout operation started (likely in the afternoon), folks may see a slight increase in smoke (which has been very, very minimal today).]]> Tue, 16 Sep 2014 18:29:30 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/d515e0107c556a860e0fbf97e5674eae http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/photos/a.10152572720073234.1073741829.331514933233/10152723245658234/?type=1 ]]> Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:03:27 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/ff8b321687c8d29d680e5b2263588dd1 http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152722895943234 Not very scientific, but a good illustration of how our perception of fire can be shaped by the images we see. The first photo is certainly more dramatic and could be possibly be considered "scary" if taken out of context. The second photo is boring in comparison, but shows the fire in a context that is lacking in a night shot. Looking only at the first photo, it is easy to forget that fire is a natural process that has a role in our ecosystem here in Eastern Washington. Trees, such as the beautiful Ponderosa Pine have adapted to fire and are resilient!]]> Mon, 15 Sep 2014 16:17:30 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/288f18d6dc4d7ba37a56592b6ac5905d http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152721833323234 Mon, 15 Sep 2014 02:32:44 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/a3a3ad2c8f8790bc76c8c64dded0a137 http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152721794628234 KPQ HOME PAGEwww.kpq.comFire crews continue to make progress on a wildland fire burning in steep terrain west of Leavenworth.

The fire has been creeping and smoldering, consuming material on the forest floor. The fire has been more active in areas of grass and brush but has largely stayed out of the tree tops. Helicopters continue to drop water. KOHO Radio reported 3 20-person crews with 2 more on order about an hour ago. One of the concerns is the steep terrain. When the ground is that steep, it is easy for material to roll downhill and then light a fire at the bottom of the hill... which then burns back up to the top. This is problematic for firefighter safety as well as fire containment.]]> Sun, 14 Sep 2014 22:24:17 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/4bcd00f39e1c955cde9dc5922766389e http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152721284498234 KOHO Radio 101.1 FM on Tumwater Fire: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10152445582562815&substory_index=0&id=76231617814]]> Sun, 14 Sep 2014 20:59:30 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/67e27ea41f6cbe0d7ed27f7e6c885b85 http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152720983568234 We have seen a lot of fire this summer - much of it with extreme fire behavior and some of it with devastating consequences for communities. However, it is important to remember that not all fire is extreme fire. In addition, much of the dialogue this summer focused on the importance of keeping the Chiwaukum Fire west of Highway 2 - that doesn't mean that any fire east of Highway 2 will automatically be severe. In that case, the objective of keeping the fire to the west had to do with predicted weather, fire behavior and fuel conditions. In other words, it was about that fire (Chiwaukum) on that day. We recognize that this fire is close but want to also recognize that not all fire is extreme or severe. Just as there are many different types of rain and snow, there are many different types of fire.]]> Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:18:35 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/e3de07bcbe89d9d65a2e5ad5e3982db6 http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/photos/a.10152572720073234.1073741829.331514933233/10152720907018234/?type=1 ]]> Sun, 14 Sep 2014 17:36:43 +0000 Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition Chumstick Wildfire Stewardship Coalition www.facebook.com/notification/0df4a9e7cf23c7edfa9fe1870e6120d4 http://www.facebook.com/ChumstickCoalition/posts/10152720844678234 Icicle TV - along with more specific info on location.Timeline PhotosHere's a current photo of the fire burning at the mouth of Tumwater Canyon. @[76231617814:274:KOHO Radio 101.1 FM] is reporting that crews are optimistic they can contain it by tonight.

All members of the public are invited to attend. Ten thousand lightning strikes occurred last night in the Northwest states, accompanied by 1/4 inch to nearly ½ an inch of rain within the incident area. Fuels remain very moist; however, fire danger still exists. Lightning may have ignited new fires which could show up over the next several days. Initial attack crews are available to respond to any new starts. Thursday and Friday fire behavior is expected to be more benign. However, fires are still expected to creep and smolder under forested areas with heavy canopy. Large woody fuels are still dry. By Saturday, conditions are expected to dry up and those fine fuels will once again burn easily. Progress on the Duncan Fire was made difficult by wet conditions. Heavy rains caused a creek channel to change direction, threatening nearby homes. Firefighters showed considerable flexibility by working with the local Forest Service Ranger District, moving and placing sandbags to mitigate stream overflow. Reductions in evacuation levels have occurred: Level 2 Evacuation Notices have been downgraded to Level 1 and are in effect from Entiat River Rd from Mile Post 18 to the community of Brief, on Entiat River Rd from Brief to the end of County Rd, and on Tyee Rd, Genne Rd, and Jennie Ln. Crews are continuing to make progress on the north/northeastern portion of the Hansel Creek Fire. At the western edge of the fire, firefighters made significant progress building fireline toward a rocky area and conducting mop-up. The fire remains west of Highway 97. Structure protection is in place and the portion of the fire closest to Highway 97 remains secured. Level 2 Evacuation Notices on Highway 97 have been downgraded to Level 1 in the stretch of the highway from Ingalls Creek to Camas Creek Road, and in Valley Hi from Ingalls Ln. to Cottonwood Ln. Level 3 Evacuation Notices have been downgraded to Level 2 between Ingalls Creek Rd, Hanzel Cr. Rd, and Pine Ridge Rd. Wet conditions are making travel difficult towards the Shoofly Fire. Very steep terrain has made direct attack difficult. Firefighters are developing contingencies on Lake Creek Road and the Heather Creek Drainage that may be used as containment lines. The Alpine Fire is now 100% lined, and 80% contained, and will be unstaffed today. Mop-up continues on the northwest corner of Chiwaukum Creek Fire at McCue Ridge. Rehabilitation of the fire lines and mop-up activities continue. Spotting along the western/northwestern edges of the fire has been contained, and hoselines are being removed from the line. Level 1 Evacuation Notices have been issued on Coulier Rd. Public Safety: Successive rain events are expected to occur throughout the day, with the possibility of 3/10 of an inch within a 20 minute period. Wet conditions, mixed with erosion from the fire have caused Flash Flood Warnings in effect through Friday night. There are multiple fires in the area with large equipment and increased road traffic. Fire equipment may be on the roads at any time during the day as they respond to new starts, and wet conditions make roads dangerous, so please travel with caution. All major roads including Highway 2 and Highway 97 are open. Businesses in surrounding communities remain open and ready for business!
