Does anyone have any first hand news about the fire around alder lake?  Looks like it's growing, and I heard rumor that there was a fire in the Elbe hills too, but didn't see anything about it online.

Is there a way to volunteer to help the fire crews in any way?

Thanks

Several fires going..The Newhalem complex up in Skagit and the Jumbo in the Darrington area seem to be the largest so far.

Drove right past the Alder Lake fire a couple days ago. It is isolated to the Lewis county side of the lake. The problem with the area of the fire was that it was very steep terrain and far from roads. I have heard a old logging road was cleared and they are getting better access. Last I heard it had burned over 200 acres.

If you zoom in on the map it shows the actual fire boundaries.

well it's starting to pour rain a bit here in the south sound so hopefully that will be the end of it for now.

Just got back from the Yakima area. Very very dry out there. Wind and scattered showers all weekend. I've been out of touch, did the recent winds spread the fires, or did the associated rain help slow them down?
