Mt Adams Wildfire-View from Randle Washington


The Mt Adams Fire has now spread to over 8,000 acres with the winds and dry weather. Wildfires are spreading everywhere in washington state. People need to be extra careful in areas where campfires are still legal at this time, (Skate Creek being one of them)between packwood and ashford. Act responsible and make certain your campfire is dead BEFORE you leave it! I don't know how many I have put out personally that have been left to burn, it is frustrating to think someone could use this absolutely beautiful forest land and not care wether it is usable to everyone else tomorrow due to one persons carelessness. Everyone else suffers for that individuals lack of action. It takes just a few minutes to put out a fire.
And for those who simply flick that cigarette butt out the window think twice. Use a bottle of water in your vehicle and put the butts in it.

There were also hunters in the wildfire area, two hunters were woken up by family members calling them after watching morning news. The two hunters made it out alive but lost all of their gear in the fire.
