Planned Burn near Stehekin
Contact: Ken Hires, 360-854-7365 ext. 13
The North Cascades National Park fire management team is preparing for a potential prescribed burn in the Stehekin Valley. This burn will not occur until the demand for firefighting resources to help contain the wildfires in the area has subsided, and the current air quality and dry fuel conditions have improved. The exact timing will be determined by environmental conditions, such as weather and fuel moisture. Visitors and residents should expect to see smoke. After ignition is complete, burn crews will begin mopping up to minimize smoke impacts, especially if the burn occurs before or during the first full week of October when businesses offer special visitor packages in conjunction with fall colors and the Harvest Festival.
