Umpqua river on fire

Well not the river exactly but Highway 138 is closed from Susan Ck to Steamboat Ck due to a wildfire. If you are planning a trip soon you should check to verify the status of the road. With temps over 100 I don't foresee this fire going away soon. But here's to hoping.

It ain't good

Here is a link. Pretty close to Franks house. The cleanup could be a far as fishing goes.

Quite a Fire!!

Just talked to Joe at Blue Heron. Frank and Jeanne were OK as of last night although they have moved some of their important papers and treasures to their kid's house in Glide.

Steamboat Inn was evacuated yesterday, but no damage as of this morning. Road is closed from Suzan Creek campground up to about four miles past Steamboat Inn.

As of this morning it had burned about 4500 acres and was only 20% contained.

Let's all hope and pray that Frank and Jeanne and Steamboat survive this OK.

Hate to think of all the ash that will be going into the river if they get a heavy rain shortly after the fire is out.
