A massive fire is burning on the Oregon-Washington border, with a 15-year-old Vancouver teen suspected of setting off a firecracker which set off the blaze burning uncontrollably at Eagle Creek and now into Washington after the fire jumped the Columbia River Gorge in Skamania County on Tuesday.

So? In southern California we do this every year.
Some places get tornadoes. Some get hurricanes.
We get annual fires and occasional earth quakes.

I'm in Seattle and there's still too much ash in the air for a long walk. I woke up early yesterday and was looking at the orange moon and thinking how pretty it was when I realized it was the sun.

Shelworth I wouldn't but they seem to be staying, which is why they should evacuate the area BEFORE the fire gets there...
