The Chelan County Sheriff's Office has issued a Level 1 fire advisory for the north shore of Lake Chelan between Canoe Creek and Meadow Creek. The CCSO also issued a Level 3 evacuation for the Rex Creek area, noting that Lakeshore Trail is "unusable between Prince Creek and Meadow Creek." "Do not attempt to hike in this area due to fire danger," the CCSO wrote on Facebook. "This area is remote and only accessible by boat. It is approximately 31 miles up lake from Chelan." Washington's Department of Natural Resources said they've assigned both air and ground crews and are responding to the fire, which is currently estimated at 300 acres. DNR, in an update posted on X, wrote that Lakeshore Trail is currently closed from Prince Creek north to Moore Point.
