On 1/8/22 at 11:32 pm, Chelan Fire and Rescue was dispatched for a reported fully-involved barn fire in the Swanson Gulch area.

Neighbors noticed the fire and alerted the homeowners who called 911.

Crews arrived to find a well-involved large shop with a full-size RV next to it.  The main fire building was quickly called a defensive fire and suppression efforts focused on protecting the RV from catching fire. 

Crews faced challenges with the fires remote location, snow conditions and lack of fire hydrants.

Crews from Chelan County Fire District #5 (Manson) and Douglas County Fire District #4 (Orondo) also assisted. In all, eleven firefighters responded and units were on scene till approximately 2:30 am.

Three goats that were in a pen attached to the structure were helped to safety by the homeowner. The shop was declared a total loss.

The fire is currently under investigation and appears to have been caused by an electrical issue.

Chelan Fire and Rescue would like to thank Manson and Orondo for their help in getting this fire under control.

Last night at 10:25 p.m. crews from Chelan Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a reported structure fire at 524 N. Markeson Street in Chelan.

First arriving crew was on scene at 22:28 and reported heavy flames and smoke coming from the rear of the structure and initiated a defensive fire attack.  

Residents of the house reported that 5 people were living there with 4 of those people in the residence at the time of the fire.  All were able to escape without injury.  Residents also reported that 2 dogs were also in the house and that one did not get out. 

Second alarm resources from Manson, Orondo, and Wenatchee were dispatched due to the number of exposures nearby and the difficulty in controlling this fire. 

Fire was contained at 12:49 a.m. and crews remained on scene to monitor the structure throughout the night. 

Residents of the structure were put in contact with Red Cross for shelter and assistance. 

A total of 11 apparatus and 24 personnel were on scene with no reported injuries. 

There is no estimate of total fire loss at this time and the cause of this fire is currently under investigation.
