This is the final update on the Jungle Creek Fire. We want to thank forest recreationists for their patience with the road, trail, and area closures while firefighting efforts occurred on the Jungle Creek Fire.
We ask forest visitors to not let their guard down even though the fire has been declared 100% contained. The closure for the footprint of the fire remains in place; for public safety, do not enter the fire area as hazards still exist.
Fire crews will continue to monitor and patrol the fire over the next few weeks. Forest visitors may continue to see smoke in the interior area of the fire; fall rains will eventually extinguish these small hot spots.
Please contact the Naches Ranger District office (509-653-1401) for information about the area closure.
