Red Apple Fire Wenatchee

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Cascade Real Estate

As you may be aware, we have had a couple fires in the Wenatchee area in last couple weeks. Fortunately, thanks to the fast action of the local fire fighters with help from State and Federal too and lots of air drops (5 planes on the current fire) NO HOMES have been lost so far. This paticular fire 1500 people or so were given evacuation now (level 3) notices. One of my clients, the fire was almost to their and some neighbors homes. It started late in the evening so all the fire fighters had not yet gotten there. But hot dry weather very low humidity and 16-25mph wind was moving it very fast. So my client who has an excation business took one of his CATS and started cutting fire lines to protect the homes. He was successful. I am attaching a timelapse photo of the fire the first night. Taken over a 2 hour period you can see how fast it moved and how hot it was.

The fire is now over 9,000 acres

It is so sad to see so many fires all over the west.  We have quite a few in Colorado too.
