Easton Ridge Fire

This afternoon about 400, a helicopter with 4 people aboard, crashed into the densely forested mountains just over Snoqualamie Pass. THe crash broke out in flames and that started a 4 acre fire that quickly grew to 300 acres.

The phone rang about 730 and it was Tim calling collect to tell me he could not talk, but that he was on his way over to the fire. THis one could be a really bad one, as it was fueled, and it crashed into very dry timber on the east side of the mountains. It is also very sttep and there are no roads into the site.

TIm and his crew will be breaking trail, and climbing mountains to get to it. Say a prayer folks, THis has the potential to grow HUGE!

I will keep you all posted as I know more.
