6/27/2017 Spartan Fire Update

On June 26, 2017, three separate grass fires burning near the Alcoa/Malaga area southeast of Wenatchee, WA merged into one wildfire now called the Spartan Fire (renamed from the Alcoa Fire).
Today: Firefighters and multiple air resources are working to hold the fire to the west of Alcoa Highway and north of Colockum Road. Currently crews are reporting active spread at the head of the wind driven grass fire. Firefighters will use existing roads, dozer lines, water drops and natural features wherever possible to limit future fire spread in this area. To the west, the fire continues to creep and back slowly through grass and brush.
Smoke: Light to moderate smoke from today’s fire activity will spread to the east toward Quincy, WA. For more information on smoke and air quality please visit:
Evacuations: Level 2 evacuation levels are in place for Colockum Road, Kingsbury Road, Moses Carr Road, Ingersoll Road, and Tarpiscan Road. Level 2 means to be ready to leave in an instant.

Traffic is limited to local traffic only beyond milepost 8 along the Alcoa/Malaga Highway. There are no other closures in place at this time. 

Fire Information: 541-612-0642
