Fire Fighters Take Advantage of Cool Weather
News With Richard Uhlhorn Richard Uhlhorn - July 22, 2014
Chelan Falls Park along the Columbia River has become a bedroom for firefighters battling the Carlton Complex Fire on the south side.
The Chelan Falls Base Camp has also been set up to take care of the business of fire fighting from planning to finance to public information.
Fire crews like this hotshot crew from Baker River in Oregon were arriving at the Chelan Falls Base Camp prior to moving out to their designated locations.

Fire Fighters Take Advantage of Cool Weather

By Richard Uhlhorn
A visit to the Carlton Complex South Zone Fire Base at Chelan Falls Park on Tuesday, July 22, resulted in solid information concerning the fire activity on the Lake Chelan side.

On Monday night, the fire was quiet in the southern zone due to lighter fuels.

In Black Canyon, the fire burned actively in the understory throughout the night hours but did not make any significant runs or major movement.

Incident meteorologists have been monitoring the arrival of the wet weather system that entered the Valley late last night. As expected, it brought minimal rain to portions of the fire.

The biggest worry is the possibility of lightning as this weather system passes through North Central Washington. The Incident Team is planning on allowing fire fighters to respond to these changing weather conditions in a safe and effective manner.

Fire engine and fire crews continue to arrive in the Carlton Complex South Zone at Chelan Falls Park.

Tuesday’s priorities were to hold the fire from further progress to the north, west and south. Firefighters were mopping up and extinguishing hot spots in the fire’s interior. In Black Canyon, crews with the support of aircraft were constructing fire line directly against the fire’s edge.

Containment objectives have been met from Pateros west to Antoine Creek and the area was unstaffed on Tuesday.

Advantage is being taken of the weather system and firefighters were aggressive on the lines with support from a variety of aircraft, including helicopters and three ‘super scoopers’ (large aircraft that can scoop water from lakes and rivers while in flight.

Portions of the Wenatchee National Forest remained closed due to fire activity. Contact the Wenatchee National Forest for specific information or call the Fire Information Line at 509-664-9353 or 509-664-9277 between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. each day.

Significant Events:

* Moderated fire behavior has again allowed for good progress in line construction in parts of fire's footprint. Point protection is still taking place.

Planned Actions:

* North Zone: - Point protection and structure protection. Line preparation to facilitate burnout.

* East Zone: Continue to use direct and indirect fire-fighting, mopping-up around structures, building contingency plans and working on the firing operation plan. Hold the fire south of Highway 20.

* South Zone: Continue to secure the perimeter around Antoine Canyon and scout for opportunities in Black Creek and Squaw Canyon.

Projected Incident Activity:

* North Zone: 2-3 mile spread to the west, otherwise there will continue to be a moderate rate of spread as the weather continues to cool down and relative humidity rises.

* East Zone: The fire is expected to continue to be active as the weather continues to cool down and relative humidity rises.

South Zone: The fire is expected to continue to spread in Black Creek drainage south toward Copper Ridge. Also, the fire is expected to continue moving in Squaw Creek and to spread along the uncontrolled perimeter in Antoine Creek.

The fire activity will be moderate as a new weather system enters the region.

Weather Concerns:

* Current weather 85 degrees, RH 20%, and winds SSE 8 mph with gusts up to 20. Expected weather tomorrow high of 84, RH 25%. Upslope/Upvalley winds 12 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.

Lone Mountain Fire Update July 22
National Park Service Ken Hires, NCNPC - July 22, 2014
Lone Mountain Fire InciWeb Map 7-22-14 17:00
Lone Mountain Fire Update July 22
The Lone Mountain 1 Fire was started by a lightning storm on July 14, 2014. Efforts at full suppression were not expected to be successful due to the extreme fire weather and steep topography; firefighter safety could not be assured. Fire managers moved to a “Point Protection Strategy” emphasizing the need to prevent fire spread towards the community of Stehekin and into the War Creek drainage which could threaten the Twisp River drainage. The fire is fully within the Stephen Mather Wilderness.

The Northern Rockies Wildland Fire Management Team assumed command of the fire yesterday; Diane Hutton is the Incident Commander. Efforts at this time are to strengthen contingency lines near Stehekin in the 2010 Rainbow Bridge fire scar and around the community, and establish hose lays up Boulder Creek. A hoselay and trail improvement work has been done from Juanita lake up to War Creek Pass. These strategies are to enhance protection actions if the fire moves towards Stehekin or War Creek.

Fire activity was slow on Monday with individual tree torching and short fire runs. Today thunderstorms should be developing with a chance of wetting rains by tomorrow. Temperatures on the fire are predicted to be in the 50s with lower relative humidity. Later in the week, warmer weather is expected to return when the low pressure moves out of the mountains.

Name: Lone Mountain 1 Fire
Cause: Lightning
Location: Boulder Creek drainage, northeast of Stehekin and west of Butte Creek, in the Stephen Mather Wilderness
Jurisdiction: North Cascades National Park Complex, National Park Service
Size: 1700 acres
Command: N. Rockies Wildland Fire Management Team, Diane Hutton, Incident Commander
Fire fighters consist of two fire management modules, a short crew of smokejumpers and a fire crew. Today they will continue protection efforts near Stehekin and initiating hose lays near homes. Heavy rain may curtail crew activity due to safety concerns with working among snags and the potential for landslides. Two helicopters are available to the fire for transport of people and equipment and for water drops if there is a need to delay fire spread. Fire managers conducted reconnaissance from the air and will continue to monitor fire behavior and fuels conditions in the fire area.

Information about the Lone Mountain 1 Fire will be shared at a public meeting sponsored by North Cascades National Park managers in Stehekin at 7 pm tonight. The meeting was planned to discuss other park management issues. Contact the Wilderness Information Center in Stehekin for more information 360-854-7241.

The Boulder Creek Trail in the North Cascades National Park and War Creek Trail in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest remain closed.

Carlton Complex East Zone Update 7/22/14 7:45 a.m.
PHP-Nuke Dave Herald - July , 2014
Carlton Complex East Zone Update 7/22/14 7:45 a.m.
East Zone Public Meeting to be held at 7:00 PM tonight Malott Grange, 54 B&O Rd. Malott

And listen to this audio report from our friends over at Sunny FM ...

This update covers the EAST ZONE of the Carlton Complex. Firefighters are working 24 hours a day to continue to build and maintain line. Yesterday was a good day with all the constructed containment line being held and no additional structures lost. As firefighters continue to work in the Loup Loup drainage Highway 20 remains closed.

Fire crews face difficult challenges working in several steep canyon areas that are heavily forested and covering a long distance fire perimeter. The National Guard Blackhawk helicopters will continue dropping water to assist with establishing and maintaining containment lines.

Firefighter and public safety remain the priority and crews will continue to remain heads up with changing weather conditions. The humidity will be higher today, but winds may be a bit stronger with gusts up to 25 mph.

Chelan County PUD Seeking Ideas for the Next Generation of Public Power
Chelan County PUD Kimberlee Craig, CCPUD - July 22, 2014

Chelan County PUD Seeking Ideas for the Next Generation of Public Power
PUD customers and community members join the conversation on Chelan County’s future

In a little more than a month, Chelan County PUD customers and members of the community have provided more than 400 suggestions, attended more than 20 community meetings and talked to lots and lots of PUD employees about what their public utility could do in the future to make this area’s quality of life even better.

Jeff Smith, District Services managing director, Monday provided an update for commissioners on the approach being taken for gathering comments on possible future roles for the PUD in parks and recreation, water and wastewater, fiber and telecom, electrification, economic development and in reinvestment in the utility.

Teams of community members, customers, and PUD employees are reviewing each suggestion. The goal is to bring recommendations to PUD board members by early fall that could be included in the new strategic plan.

Nearly 200 people gathered at Wenatchee’s Numerica Performing Arts Center in June to help launch the discussion, Smith said. Since then:
  • Six topic teams were created
  • 20 community meetings have been held so far around the county in Leavenworth, Cashmere, Entiat, Peshastin, Chelan, Stehekin, Manson, Wenatchee and Malaga
  • 400 comments have been received
  • And, at least 250 individual conversations held with customer-owners about the possibilities
Smith said people are encouraged to submit comments by mid-August so the teams have time to discuss them in depth as they prepare recommendations for a community-wide town hall and then a proposed plan to go to commissioners in early fall.

To get involved, visit ourpublicpower.org, send comments and questions to or contact George Velazquez, strategic planning project manager, at (509) 661-4547 to share your idea(s).

In other business Monday, commissioners:
  • Heard how the quick response by PUD crews and coordination with firefighters has kept damage to Chelan County PUD power lines to a minimum so far as wildfires continue to burn in the region. Fire retardant paint and clearing brush away from poles protected transmission line in a four-mile stretch along Highway 97A from damage as the Mills Canyon fire burned past, said Kirk Hudson, Generation and Transmission managing director. Outages have been limited to those directly affected by the fire, said John Stoll, Customer Utilities managing director. Stoll said fire managers praised the coordination efforts led by the Distribution line operations group, adding that proactive measures have “helped us keep the lights on and our costs down.” PUD crews also are closely coordinating with firefighters battling the Chiwaukum Fire that runs west of the Stevens Pass Highway and south of Coles Corner. PUD transmission lines are on the east side of the highway, across from the fire, in steep terrain. “Our No. 1 goal is public and employee safety,” Hudson said. Crews are also watching and monitoring the destructive Carlton Complex fires, where flames have moved into Chelan County north of Chelan, but there is no immediate threat to power lines. Chelan PUD is poised to send two crews to help neighboring Okanogan PUD rebuild lines destroyed last week by the fires, Stoll said.
  • Heard that donations made at PUD offices in Wenatchee, Chelan and Leavenworth for area Red Cross fire aid have topped $9,200.
  • Held a public hearing on the proposed 2014 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) Progress Report that lists resources the District will use to meet load growth and state renewable energy requirements through 2019. No one commented. Commissioners then approved the 2014 IRP progress report.
  • Set two special meetings for Wednesday, July 23. Commissioners will attend and observe a strategy partners meeting, as part of strategic planning, at 7:30 a.m. at Town Toyota Center in Wenatchee. At 11:30 a.m. they will attend the annual PUD retiree luncheon at Rocky Reach Dam.

Carlton Complex Fire Update 7-22-14 Noon
PHP-Nuke Greg Kennedy - July 22, 2014

Carlton Complex Fire Update 7-22-14 Noon
Incident Overview

The Carlton Complex fires started on July 14, by lightning from a weather system that moved through the Methow Valley. The Carlton Complex consists of four fires: Stokes Fire, Gold Hikes Fire, French Creek Fire and the Cougar Flat. The Stokes and Gold Hikes fires are now one larger fire. The fires are burning in timber and grass. Cooperating agencies include the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), Washington State Department of Natural Resources, (WA DNR), Bureau of Land Management, WA Department of Fish & Wildlife, Okanogan Fire District 6, Okanogan Fire District 15 and the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office.

Yesterday was another challenging day for fire crews. Hot weather and windy conditions pushed the fire over the ridge tops and into the town of Pateros resulting in a large number of evacuations. An estimated 300-500 homes were evacuated, including the Pateros Red Cross shelter. Red Cross Shelters have opened in Twisp, Omak and Chelan. Displaced public can make contact with the Red Cross at 509-990-0969.

The extreme fire behavior and hot weather conditions will continue to challenge firefighting efforts. Structure Protection crews are working throughout the fire areas patrolling and monitoring around structures. Firefighters are working with property owners to help reduce vegetation and remove debris. 35 primary residences were lost in the fire last night. Additional updates will be made as more structures are accounted for.

This evening the fire traveled south to the edge of the communities of Pateros and Brewster. A command post has been set up in the area with Okanogan, Douglas, Chelan, and Grant County Emergency Management. State Mobilization resources have been requested for structure protection. Increased evacuations are in place, but exact locations have been difficult to determine due to the fluid situation and rapid fire growth.

The present fire situation continues to rapidly change due to the high fire danger. Public and firefighter safety is the priority on the Carlton Complex fires.

A Level 3 Evacuation Notice is in place between Carlton to Pateros and in the Pateros and Brewster areas. You can contact the “511” automated Washington Department of Transportation Travel Information line for updated information.

A Look at Pateros, Alta Lake and Black Canyon

A Look at Pateros, Alta Lake and Black Canyon
I took a trip today to assess the nearby fire situation. The mood in the aftermath of the Pateros and Alta Lake fires was one of sober shock. People are active in the Pateros and Alta Lake areas but are moving cautiously as the damage caused by the fires sinks in.

My first stop today was the junction of Apple Acres Rd. and Antoine Creek Rd. A sheriff's vehicle was parked there to make sure only fire personnel and residents were allowed on Antoine Creek Rd. Dan Folsom, who lives across from the intersection on Folsom Hollow Lane was there and said that he had purchased a 4000 gallon swimming pool for the express purpose of having a water source in case fire were to reach his home. He also has a gas-powered pump fitted with a 100 foot hose. Dan said he and his wife were on "pins and needles" as the wind blew towards their home. Luckily, the fire did not reach their home.

The next stop was Pateros, across the highway from downtown. Several homes were reduced to ash from the intense heat of the fires. Even though all structures could not be saved, the evidence of the firefighting efforts is widespread. The lines between burned and non-burned areas evidenced attention to detail, caring, and professionalism.

A man could be seen removing the burnt remains of bushes behind the Pateros Community Church. On the front of the church a sign read "Please Consider: This church & surrounding area is w/out - No water + electricity."

I ran into two ladies who were putting up signs to let people know they do not have to drive to Brewster for relief. Shannon Stanley-Hampe and Mellisa Gray said that Pateros High School has meals, drinks and a donation drop-off set up. They also have signs pointing to Brewster for the fire victim aid station. In the distance, smoke could be seen rising above the Black Canyon area, in the Methow River direction.

Heading up the Methow, the flags in front of the fruit stand were bent over by strong winds heading up the canyon, away from Pateros.

Arriving at Alta Lake was nothing less than shocking. Damage was widespread with many of the homes on the perimeter, where the development meets the hills, completely reduced to ash. In many instances, only the foundation and fireplace remained identifiable. In several places you could see homeowners and friends just standing in front of the ruin in disbelief. Seeing the green grass of the golf course contrasted against the lifeless burnt earth was surreal. There were flower gardens where the plants were not burnt but showed signs of intense heat. Some orchard trees on the edge were singed but mostly unharmed.

Near several homes, pools of once molten aluminum tell the tale of the temperatures reached in these blazes.

Heading up the Methow, evidence of the fires could be seen all along the road. Visions of the massive amount of manpower fighting fires in such a large area is daunting. The hills at the base of Amy's Manor looked as if the manor must have burned, but a quick trip up the driveway showed the manor intact. It appeared the fire was fought 360 degrees around the house and grounds.

Next, I headed up Black Canyon to see what was going on in an active area. About a half-mile up the canyon road, I was in the fire. Flames were right next to the road and the wind was blowing enough to make me pretty nervous. I took a couple of pictures and shot some video then headed further up the canyon. It did not take long before the road was closed and I was not able to get any closer without authorization.

Luckily, I ran into Kit Bailey, Operations Section Chief with California Incident Management Team 4. He gave an update on the fire progress and assured me that, with present conditions, we were safe from the fires reaching Chelan. He said the Antoine Creek operation was successful and was not a worry at this time.

Monday morning flight up Antoine and Alta Lake
News With Richard Uhlhorn Richard Uhlhorn - July 21, 2014
Air tanker runs west of the Alta Lake drainage to the south of Alta Lake leave a red reminder of retardant runs.
Monday morning flight up Antoine and Alta Lake
By Richard Uhlhorn
GoLakeChelan had the opportunity to fly with Dale England on Monday morning, July 21, to check the status of the Antoine Creek drainage. Antoine and Washington Creek drainages are under a Level 3 Evacuation notice and Union Value is under an Evacuation Level 2.

As of this morning when we flew (10 a.m. to 11 a.m.) the fire activity was mild and the fire front had not reached the ridge top to the north of Antoine Creek. No fire activity was noted in that drainage and from our view point at 8,000 feet it looked like considerable time would pass before it actually got into Antoine Creek.

Click Here for the photo gallery
Because many people have been requesting photos and video from Alta Lake, England received authority from Air Attack to fly the valley. The devastation is disheartening. When looking at the images, one wonders why one home sitting next to another home survived.

As we flew to the northern edge, we were amazed at how far the fire penetrated an orchard; at least three rows on one edge of the fire.

GoLakeChelan will attempt to get current fire information out to the public as soon as we get it. Information has been sketchy during this fire even from the incident website.

View is east of the Antoine Creek drainage on Monday morning. View is north of the Alta Lake area.
We also shot 60 minutes of aerial video which we have yet to edit - but have uploaded the entire flight on-line.

THANK YOU LAKE CHELAN HELICOPTERS!

New Information in the Search for Bill Fitzpatrick
Local News
Parks pilot Bill Fitzpatrick (right) with an aviation official before departing Senegal on 19 June en route to the Republic of Congo.
UPDATE ON SEARCH FOR FORMER STEHEKIN RANGER
STILL MISSING IN AFRICA

It’ been 4 weeks now since former Stehekin Park Ranger and friend of so many here in the valley,
Bill Fitzpatrick, disappeared while piloting a small airplane en route to Duola, Cameroon, (See our map).

Since we first learned of the story, we’ve made a point to avoid repeating information that we could not verify either through official or family sources.

While flying from Nigeria to Cameroon on June 22nd, Bill reportedly radioed the Air Traffic Control tower in Duola, Camerooon when he was about 62 miles away from the that airfield. That was the last time he was heard from.

Thanks to Bill’s wife Paula (here in the Valley) , and Bill’s brother Ken Fitzpatrick (of Connecticut) we have now been provided added information about his disappearance along with a call for help.

Paula and Ken have both confirmed that while official channels in Cameroon have mostly been officially silent on details of the incident, much is being done on the ground there, to locate Bill and the missing aircraft.

To assist our readers and friends to understand the difficult situation - Paula Fitzpatrick shares what she can:
"Dear Friends,

My husband, Bill Fitzpatrick was flying a small plane from Dakar, Senegal to Brazzaville, Congo just a few weeks ago when his plane disappeared. They last heard from him on the border of Nigeria and Cameroon.

Extensive aerial searches have found no trace. Ground searches are being intensified. These searches are being conducted by African Parks (Bill's employer), Cameroon Military, WWF and other organizations. Multiple NGO's in both countries have been notified and a reward has gone out on local radio and TV stations.

The African Park Manager and individuals within the US State Department contact me daily to keep me updated on search efforts and results. They have been supportive and absolutely wonderful.

Many questions remain unanswered and my contacts are working hard to answer them.
There is much frustration across the board.

The Cameroon government has control over the search as the belief is Bill's location is Cameroon.

Many of you in the community of Chelan have shared with our family their thoughts and prayers of Bill's safe return. I can not thank you enough for your support. This is an indescribable time for us.

I am asking for you to continue those positive thoughts.
I am also asking that you help to keep the search active and increase the awareness of the US pilot missing in Cameroon by contacting any and all Congressmen, Representatives, political personnel you have access to.
Please express your concern that a citizen is missing and must be found.

Bill spent a great part of his life working for the National Park Service. Before that he lived in West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer working in a chimpanzee reserve supported by Jane Goodall.
I met Bill, from New York City, after we had both returned from Africa and within the month he had introduced me to Jane Goodall and we shared dinner together.

The job he accepted in Congo is one of the greatest presents he received. He flies, he speaks a new language, he helps save wildlife and he lives in a continent he fell in love with.

Please think what you can do to help get Bill home.

Thank you ~ Paula Fitzpatrick"

Chelan to Africa Benefit at Benson Winery Aug 2nd
An Evening of Great Fun to Benefit Families Locally and Abroad

Chelan to Africa is excited and proud to be hosting our 7th benefit concert. This is an evening of great fun, and this year the money we raise will benefit deserving organizations both locally and in Africa.

Chelan to Africa has consistently raised funds to benefit the Touching Tiny Lives Foundation (touchingtinylives.org) helping children under 5 who are affected by HIV/AIDS. Lesotho is a nation hugely affected by HIV/AIDS- with women and young children bearing the brunt. There is little to no safety net for these children. The Touching Tiny Lives Foundation supports a safe house and an extensive outreach program to provide medicine, care, and nutrition for these children.

This year we are so pleased to be working with the Lake Chelan Food Bank in support of their capital campaign to purchase the building they will be sharing with Chelan Valley Hope. We feel that this combined effort allows for everyone to contribute both locally and in Lesotho.

We hope you join us for a fun filled evening on August 2 at the beautiful Benson Vineyards Estate Winery. There will be special auction and raffle items from local businesses. Music will be provided by the great Kevin Jones Band. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased from Chelan Printing on Woodin Ave., with Jan Fedor at 425.941.1878 or at the door.

It is always appreciated when tickets are purchased in advance!

Check us out on Facebook!

Gebbers Farms Update 7-19-14
PHP-Nuke Gebbers Farms Release - July 20, 2014
Gebbers Farms Update 7-19-14
Yesterday marked the second day of devastating fires sweeping our communities in the Pateros, Brewster, and Malott areas. Sadly, more homes and properties have been lost and damaged due to the fires. We are thankful and appreciative of the efforts made by friends, employees, and residents to help in any way possible in these difficult times. We are thankful that there have been no serious injuries as a result of fighting these fires.

It appears that today the worst of the fire threat has passed by to the north and west of our immediate area. We will remain vigilant to face any changes in conditions, and Gebbers Farms continues to commit resources to help control and extinguish the fires in our area.

Impact to Gebbers Farms Facilities and Farms

We were in full operation today at our orchards, warehouses, and fruit shipping facilities. Many employees came to work today to harvest, transport, pack, and process this years cherry crop. Many employees also continued to help family and friends as a result of this disaster, and we give them our full support and understanding.

Additional assessment of our orchards and facilities took place today. No direct damage has occurred to packing or storage facilities of Gebbers Farms and Apple House and minimal damage has been done to orchards. The 2014 Cherry Crop has not been damaged, is in excellent condition, and continues to be an extremely high quality crop.

We continue to address the loss of electrical power that has impacted our plant in Pateros and surrounding orchards. We have brought in portable generators for irrigation pumps at orchards where the power is out. With the loss of electrical power in the Town of Pateros, fruit from the Apple House facility has been moved to our Brewster storage locations. Cherry processing for the Apple House facility will be conducted in Brewster at our local plant and at Chelan Fruit, one of our Chelan Fresh Marketing partners.

Great progress is already being made to cope with this tragedy. Our communities have taken a terrible blow, but all of us are committed to rebuilding and repairing what has been lost.
