We watched the fires smolder all night and grow today, 8/18/10. Volunteer firefighters worked in Tygh Valley (but also up on Juniper Flat headed south toward Maupin...heard there were 25+ fires up there yesterday/today) until BLM and others responded. Tankers dropped 5-6 loads, followed by a helicopter that dipped water from the White River, we think just above the falls.
