Hello and thank you for visiting our blog about Northwest Wildfire activity here in the northwest. This includes recent State deployments of resource orders and wildfires in Washington State and Oregon.
If you have a wildfire tip, please call 9-1-1 in your area but we’d love the tip so we can cover it and get important information out to those who need it the most.
Wishing you all safety, no matter where you are at home or away. And, as Eric says, “Don’t forget to drink your O’s (H2o/water). — LR Swenson , Editor/Blogger
