Firefighters are battling a brush fire on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.

The "Dog Falls fire" has burned about 2.5 miles of steep terrain above Highway 14 near milepost 59 to the west of Dog Creek.

Dozens of local and regional resources are on scene, including two water-dropping helicopters.

The Dog Mountain and Augspurger trails are temporarily closed for public safety. Both trails start from the Dog Mountain trailhead.
