Seems like every week I hear about more fires. This morning the sunlight was more orange than normal and ash was on my vehicle. The latest fire I read about was intentionally caused by teens and the use of fireworks. About a week ago we had air quality warnings do to smoke blowing in from Canada I think it was. I heard Montana and California are also having some rather bad fires this summer. One of the worse things is when humans start them and other people pay the price with loss of property. I haven't heard of any deaths which is very good.

o.O Yikes, be careful! Too bad we can't send Harvey's flooding out west. Paired with the heat I've heard is happening in the western half, sounds like that side is what could use these storms, sorta.

My thoughts exactly.

Yeah, I've heard about this and it's a shame.

The 'eagle creek fire in the gorge' is how the news story refers to it as, link is attached with video if your able to watch from your computer. Is that the one you are thinking of? I don't know all the city names or the area very well. If you have updates or corrections please let me know. Thanks.

You have probably seen a lot on the news living in Oregon. I've just seen this as of today. "Public demands consequences for 15-year-old Eagle Creek fire suspect."

Well, there should be consequences for someone who's messed up enough to set a fire.
