Suncrest Fire Update: 1 p.m. Sunday Aug. 28

The new containment listing for the Suncrest Fire is between 25 and 35%. Fire officials also updated the size at over 330 acres. Air resources continue to make drops on the fire north of North Road east of the Chumstick Valley, including five helicopters, four air tankers and two air attack planes. More ground crews have arrived to assist in building containment lines between the fire and homes.
Evacuation notices are unchanged from this morning – Level 3 for 110 homes north of North Road, Level 2 for 60 homes south of North Road and Level 1 for the town of Peshastin and several homes where North Road meets Chumstick Highway.
Icicle River Middle School in Leavenworth has been set up as a Red Cross shelter. Cell phone service is still spotty so residents should rely on landlines to place emergency 911 calls.
