Brush Fire has Closed Malaga-Alcoa Highway

May 28, 2014

The Malaga-Alcoa Highway is currently closed due to a large brush fire that started a little over an hour ago. No word yet on how it started or its acreage, but officials say it has spread two miles since its origin near Milepost 8.
As of now, no structures are threatened and no evacuations are in place, but obviously that could change as the fire spreads and windy conditions continue.
Fire crews from Chelan and Douglas Counties, Chelan PUD and the Department of Natural Resources are on the scene.
We will keep you updated as soon as more details become available.
