The Entiat Ranger District will host an open house to share information about the Duncan Fire Area Closure on Monday, June 1, 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Entiat Grange Hall, 14105 Kinzel St., Entiat, WA.
The size of the closed area was reduced on May 21 with Closure Order # 917. The current closure area is generally west of Silver Creek and north of the Entiat River beginning at the Silver Falls Campground on the south end and the Glacier Peak Wilderness on the north end. This area continues to be closed because it was heavily impacted by the Duncan fire and is at a higher risk of experiencing debris flows. Often called mudslides, debris flows are water-saturated landslides that travel rapidly downslope carrying trees, rocks, and other debris threatening people and buildings in their path and cutting off roads.
