Wildfire Closes Chinook Pass

Chinook Pass is shut down as a result of a wildfire about 10 miles west of Clifdell.

The Norse Peak Fire grew Wednesday to nearly 1000 acres prompting the state DOT to close State Route 410 between the summit of Chinook Pass and the Hell’s Crossing Campground.

There’s been no estimate on when the pass will reopen and the DOT says drivers should take US12 until further notice.
