This is a fire behind Cascade Locks, about 20 miles from Hood River. Started by a teenager playing with fireworks. What part of Extreme Fire Danger didn't you understand, Buckwheat. His life might be a little different from here on.

I noticed that after the first few episodes of Beavis and Butthead the word "fire" completely disappeared.

There's always some nut job around. Hopefully they will get some containment or rain soon.

What's really amazing is how fast that blew up. I took this photo the second day of the fire from my office at 37k'. This was just a day before that time lapse was taken, and the morning they got all the hikers out of there.
Apparently the fire traveled about 12 miles in less than a day, powered by the Gorge easterlies.
Now we have the Westerlies spooling up for a few days. It's going to be interesting.

The PNW is a smoky mess right now.  Eagle Creek is still 0% contained. We drove 14 to Portland yesterday and it is hard to see the Gorge in that condition.

I feel sorry for the people and wildlife being affected by this fire. I hope the firefighters fighting this massive and fast moving blaze can get a handle on this fire.

Argh, with the west wind my house is starting to fill with smoke. All the windows and doors sealed, but it's still getting in. Visibility is down to about 1/2 mile to a mile.

UPDATE: Eagle Creek Fire Evacuation Level Changes
Sept. 8, 2017

HOOD RIVER, Ore. -- Due to increased fire activity on the east end of the fire, the Hood River County Sheriff's Office is making two changes to evacuation levels.

This new Level One area runs from Collins Rd. in Dee at the south end to I-84 on the north end, and includes all areas west of the following lines: Country Club south to Reed Road, running due south to Hwy. 281, continuing along 281 to milepost 12.5, then following the Middle Fork of the Hood River until it comes parallel with the south end of Collins Road. Level One means people should be ready for potential evacuation, and should plan for what they might need to take with them. A map has been created and will be distributed for zones A4, A5, and A6. No structures are under immediate threat from the fire.

The current Level Two evacuation area on the north-east half of Cascade Locks is being extended east to Viento State Park, staying along the I-84 corridor. This includes the In-lieu site and the whole area of Wyeth. Level Two means that people should be ready to leave at a moment's notice.
