A Level 1 evacuation notice has been issued for residents of two neighborhoods in Manson plus the Antilon Lake Campground. That means people who are sensitive to smoke or have special needs should begin to make arrangements to evacuate.
The Forest Service said the 25 Mile Fire started Thursday on private property across Lake Chelan from 25-Mile State Park. The fire is burning on both private land and Forest Service land.
Officials said more wind and warm temperatures could feed the fire on Saturday.
The cause is under investigation.
