Three Major Wildfires Burning Up The Northwest

Written by Rosemary Reynolds on August 5, 2014

Portland, Oregon     The newest fire is burning near Goldendale,  Washington in the Columbia Gorge.  Ten crews are fighting now more crews will arrive later to day to offer additional help.  The Snag Canyon Fire near Ellensburg was lightning caused.  It’s destroyed sixteen buildings and six homes.

In Southern Oregon the Beaver Complex fire rages on.  Six homes went up in flames last week.  The evacuation order remains in effect as Two Hundred Seventy Homes remain in the path of the fire. This fire has devoured land between Ashland and Klamath Falls.
