Lake Chelan coming back from disruptive wildfires
By CARY ORDWAY
Washington’s premiere vacation lake, Lake Chelan, is starting to get back to normal following weeks of disruption due to area wildfires. During that period the lake has been intermittently smoky and many visitors cancelled their planned trips to the area.

But with some rain and more temperate weather the last few days of August, firefighters have made great strides toward controlling the fires directly affecting the lake.

“The wind event that blew through the area on Saturday, August 30, resulted in minimal fire growth on the Chelan Complex Fire,” according to the website for the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce. “Containment lines on the north end of the fire held in spite of the wind on the First Creek Fire.”

The wind had one very positive effect on the area – the smoke cleared out and those gorgeous picture-postcard views returned to the lake. While it’s important that you check air quality forecasts here, the early days of September were forecast to have good air quality.

That’s all coming as much of a relief to Lake Chelan area businesses, who have seen their business decline dramatically during the fires. The fires came during the busiest and most profitable days of the year for businesses that cater to the usual onslaught of tourists to the Lake Chelan area in August.
