Mt Adams Fire, From Trout Lake, WA

Mt Adams Fire, Trout Lake WA!

This fire is one that started due to a lightning strike that didn't surface until today (Sunday).

The helicopters shown are landing just right off my front yard, and we check with them for updates and offer our hospitality to them for as long as they need it. They Yellow Helicopter (B82 Bell)is from Georgia and happened to be at a fire in Burns, OR before getting the call to help here.
The red and white Helicopter (Columbia / Huey) is from Sun river and they have come to help Aid our efforts as well as over 200 fire men and women to be able to save our town and forest. To them we say thank you!

The third picture is from Mt. Adams following the smoke to Goldendale, WA.
