North Cascades Fire Update August 24 2009
Contact: Kerry Olson, 360 854-7302
Due to low fire activity in the North Cascades National Park Complex this past week, this will be the last NOCA Fire update unless fire activity increases.
Dee Townsend, Fire Management Officer, at the North Cascades National Park Complex said, “This has almost been a record year with twenty-seven fire starts in the park. There has only been one other year with more fires (thirty-six) since the park was established in 1968. It has been a good opportunity to allow fire back on the landscape.” She reminds us that the fire season is not over yet.
