The Nakia Fire was reported on the evening of 10/9/22 on Larch Mountain, Washington DNR Land. The fire was worked during the evening and into Monday by local fire crews and State Land using aviation tools due to location and terrain. Last estimates, the fire had burned about 250 acres. The Fire showed some extreme fire behavior on Monday, but crews were making good progress on handlines in the steep, rocky terrain. Please avoid the fire area, and pay attention to all closure signs.
