Default Portland Oregon are wildfire (Eagle Creek Fire)

There is a major wildfire about 20-30 miles northeast of us coming out of the Columbia River Gorge. Areas of east Multnomah County are under "get out now!" evacuation notice (level 3) or precautionary (level 2 or 1).

If anyone needs emergency storage for a collector car, RV, boat etc we have about 2 acres of area available. My personal cell number is 503-eight oh six- 1801. 19701 SE Highway 212, Damascus OR.

This is a really dangerous fire fueled by the wrong conditions that could break out of the forest into inhabited areas. If you know someone in the affected areas let them know.

Karl

Now they need to catch the kids that threw the fireworks that started this mess. I think they will soon.

I recently moved from Sacramento to Prineville, Or. We are having a lot of smoke from the various fires. I am staying indoors as much as possible. Sorry to see all of the weather issues.....hurricanes, flooding, fires. Very damaging to the people in those areas affected. Don't want to take the Grape Crusher out right now.

Drove through Portland yesterday on the way to Seattle. Smoke was pretty thick. Photos on the news were depressing to say the least.
