The 400+ acre Cougar Creek wildfire burning in the Mad River area of the Entiat Ranger District has necessitated the closure of the Upper Mad River Train system and also Tommy Creek Trail.

The Cougar Creek Fire is burning in heavy timber, snags, and logs in steep inaccessible terrain. An Incident Management Team has been ordered to manage firefighting efforts on this difficult to access fire; that team will take over management of the fire on Tuesday, July 31.

Closures on the Entiat Ranger District:
