Chinook Pass Remains Closed Due To Wildfire

The state DOT says Chinook Pass may remain shut down through the end of the week as a result of a wildfire about 10 miles west of Clifdell.

The Norse Peak Fire is now over 1500 acres prompting the state DOT to close State Route 410 between the summit of Chinook Pass and the Hell’s Crossing Campground.

DOT says crews are working on tree removal and firefighting efforts and drivers should continue to take US12 until further notice.
