Members of Douglas County Fire District 2 and Chelan County Fire District 1 (@iaff_local453 ) are training in a house donated in the fire district today out in the area before Turtle Rock State Park. The ability to have a training burn in a vacant donated house allows firefighters to practice skills and techniques crucial to suppression and life safety.
Happy New Years from your Firefighters! However you celebrate the New Years, make good decisions and be safe tonight! #iaff4197 #dcfd2 #dog2firefighters

Firefighters responded at 8:00am to a report of a structure fire 401 South Kentucky. Command 22 and Engine 1 arrived to heavy smoke throughout the structure and fire showing from the back of the residence. Thanks again to @iaff_local453 for assistance as always and aiding in a quick knock down. No injuries were reported and all occupants made it out of the structure. Unfortunately this residence didn’t have working smoke detectors, which will aid in early detection. Take the time to ensure you have working smoke detectors in your residence. Contact the fire district if you have any questions or concerns with your smoke detectors. Photo credit to @wenatcheeworld @ncwlifechannel
Yesterday evening around 7pm firefighters responded to a report of a chimney fire in the 700 block of degage st. When units arrived the attic of the structure was well involved, thanks to @iaff_local453 for assistance with this quick knockdown. We would like to express the importance of utilizing the 9-1-1 system for emergencies especially any report of fire. When a fire or other emergency is reported through Rivercom the proper units are dispatched early based on severity and location . This fire was reported by a homeowner stopping by the station. No injuries occurred and all occupants made it out without harm. Photo credit @ncwlifechannel
