Cougar Creek Fire Now 20 Percent Contained

The Cougar Creek Fire north of Glenwood is now listed at 20 percent containment.  The fire grew by 100 acres on Monday to 22,600 acres.  Fire movement Tuesday was expected to be to the north along Mt. Adams’ east aspect, fueled mainly by bug-killed lodgepole pines.  Fire crews will be looking to strengthen lines along the west and south flanks, continue line construction and burnout along the east flank, and scout line locations to the north.  Scattered homes north of Glenwood remain under a Level 1 evacuation advisory, while all Washington State Department of Natural Resources lands and recreation sites within the Glenwood block and the south climb and all other trails on the south and east sides of Mt. Adams between Forest Road 23 at Williams Mine to the eastern boundary of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest are all closed.
