Evacuation levels reduced

Kittitas County, WA - 08/08/2013 - Effective 6:00AM this morning the Level III Evacuation zone surounding the private properties in the North-East protions of Kititas County were reduced to Level II.

All of the people who have been out of their homes for these past two weeks can return to their property. The fire teams have completed the back-burn operations in the lines adjacent to the private lands between Cook Canyon and Park Creek, thus reducing the risk to the homes.

The road closures will remain in place through the weekend and will be re-evaluated on Monday.
