I just went out and too a picture up on the hill near my home of it. It is allmost 8,000 acres in size and still growing. They are getting ready for a shift change and I should be on it in a few days. We now have 4 fires burning near me. Here is the report on it for this morning.
WA- Okanogan Wenatchee NF -Pot Peak –

The fire is located 16 miles W of Chelan, WA. A Type 1 IMT (Lohrey) has been committed. The fire is estimated to be 7200 acres with 35% estimated containment. Limited access in steep terrain continues to hamper ground operations. Burnout operations, supported by heavy helicopters, are continuing and new acres are being added daily. So far today winds cancelled burnout operations on all but the North perimeter of the fire.

"This Fire is also near me and one of the two I should be on soon. Lots of homes involved in the Beebe Fire both fires are arouns 35-40 miles away."

Ongoing Suppression:

Mark, It's a shame about the fire. But, I gotta say, that's a beautiful picture.

My unit convoyed from Ft. Sill to Yakima on manouvers back in the sixties. I fell in love with Washington.

Be careful out there........gfp
