Cougar Fire Puts Smoke into Wenatchee and Chelan Areas
A new, large fire near Mount Adams grew rapidly today. Today's smoke forecast for the Wolverine Fire did not account for the Cougar Fire, which put a large smoke plume over the towns of Wenatchee, Chelan, and the Methow Valley area for several hours today. The smoke from this fire added to the local smoke impacts of the Wolverine Fire creating unhealthy air quality conditions in some areas.
