children look on as fire rages.

Children in awe as fire rages on nearby.

I took this photo as the fire was approaching my good friends house on Orbist road south of The Dalles. He was told to leave but as a veteran wild land fire fighter (retired) he wasn't having any of it. House is still there and he is battling to keep it that way. My children looked on in amazement.
