Marblemount, WA – Firefighters have been working hard throughout the week slowing the Thunder Creek fire located within the North Cascades National Park Service Complex. The fire is 40% contained and remains at 103 acres.
Almost half the fire area is inaccessible to firefighters due to difficult and steep terrain and planning efforts are underway to establish a long-term management strategy.
Trail and campground closures remain in effect. Thunder Creek Trail is closed between Neve and Skagit Queen camps, and the Fisher Creek Trail is closed west of Cosho Camp to the junction with the Thunder Creek Trail. The Trail from Thunder Creek over Fourth of July Pass into Panther Creek remains open.
Press Releases will be issued as conditions change. Additional information is available at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4271/
