6/29/2015 Sleepy Hollow Fire sends smoke into Wenatchee

The fast moving Sleepy Hollow fire (approximate location 0.25 mi. N of Wenatchee) sent smoke into the surrounding areas and the Wenatchee air quality monitor showed Unhealthy conditions as of about midnight last night. The fire is so new that there is little official information about it at this time. A state incident management team is mobilizing to the fire and will set up better communications soon. We know it is approximately 3,000 acres in size and multiple structures have been lost. The fire is reported to be burning in grass and brush which may indicate that it won't last as long as it would if it was burning timber, and better yet, it has been hit with some heavy rain. More will be posted as we learn more.
