At 4:09 am on 3/10/22, crews from Chelan Fire & Rescue and Chelan County Fire District #5 (Manson) were dispatched to a reported structure fire on Azwell Road in the northern part of the fire district. 

ChelanFireRescueLogo200.jpgFirst arriving crew reported a small storage structure with possible exposures and were able to contain the fire immediately with the resources on scene. 

Chelan Fire & Rescue crews remained on scene for overhaul until 5:43 am. 

The property owner stated that the outbuilding was being used for storage and that there was a space heater inside being used to prevent vegetables form freezing. 

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation and there is no damage estimate available at this time.

Chelan Fire & Rescue would like to remind our community members to please use caution when using space heaters by providing adequate space around the heater to prevent accidental ignition of combustible materials.
