Chelan County Fire District 7, and Chelan County Sheriff’s Office had an emergency response Wednesday afternoon- and not to a fire, but rather a vehicle in Lake Chelan.

The incident required a call to Department of Ecology and an oil boom containment response from Chelan Fire & Rescue.


That’s Assistant Fire Chief, Mark Donnell. He says the accident occurred in the Lookout Development on the north shore of Lake Chelan and the agencies provided ground and water response.


Donnell says thanks to a quick emergency response and an even quicker response by the operator- the day ended pretty well.
