Duncan Fire and Update Tuesday Noon

The Duncan Fire is quiet so far today. This photo is from Fish Lake looking East is from yesterday afternoon. In addition to the Duncan fire, there is little known fire just west of Lake Wenatchee on Mt Mastiff which is also active. This fire is now being named  Shooefly. The Shoofly Fire is burning in steep, difficult terrain with heavy fuels approximately 10 miles up the Little Wenatchee River drainage.  The fire grew to 55 acres and management strategies are being developed. Shortages in resources are hampering containment efforts.WP_20140804_17_40_04_Pro

Highway 2 is now open and the 35 MPH speed limit was removed today. There are no longer any active fire suppression activities or vehicles along the roadway.


Highway 2 remains open on Sunday. Having this road remain open depends on firefighter and public safety, any medical emergencies and fire behavior. The Chumstick detour may resume in the event of public or firefighter safety needs on Highway 2.
