Our thoughts are with our neighbors to the east.

Road and Area Closures:
The State Route 20 closure was moved today to insure public safety as the fire has moved westward. The highway is closed from approximately 5 miles north of Marblemount to Rainy Pass. In addition to the fire activity on the west side loosened soil, rock, and vegetation continue moving down the steep slopes onto the roadway creating a continuing unpredictable driving hazard.
The Upper Skagit Complex Fires, located in the North Cascades National Park, north of Marblemount, Washington are now at 5,605 acres between the eight fires. On August 24, the eight fires were at 4,342 acres. The fires are believed to have been started by lightening on August 10th, 2015 and there are currently 176 personnel, including 3 hand crews, 1 helicopter, 6 engines, and 1 water tender on scene.
