Heavy Rains Help With Fire

posted Aug 31, 2015, 12:06 PM by Martha Rasmussen

Significant rain fell last weekend leaving the forest fire on Jumbo Mountain slowed and smoldering.  The surrounding forest has been drenched making it unlikely that Jumbo Mountain fire will spread.  Lets all hope for rain for our burning fires on the eastside!

Fire On Jumbo Mountain

posted Aug 31, 2015, 10:23 AM by Martha Rasmussen   [ updated Aug 31, 2015, 11:58 AM ]

There is a forest fire on Jumbo Mountain south of the town of Darrington.  This 70 acre fire caused by a lightning strike is constantly being monitored and contained by rock faces on either side.  The Mountain Loop Highway, surrounding campgrounds, hiking trails and other recreation are currently open.  A reminder that there are no campfires allowed at this time due to the extremely dry summer!
