The Eagle Creek Fire, was reported Sept. 2 at approximately 4 p.m in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The fire grew to 3,000 acres overnight that first night. During the night of September 4th and 5th, east winds, combined with excessive heat caused the fire rapidly increase in size pushing westward. As of the morning of September 5th, the fire had grown to over 20,000 acres and had spotted across the Columbia River into Washington near Archer Mountain. Cooler temperatures and higher humidity levels helped slow fire growth over the next several days. As of September 26, the fire was at 48,573 acres. Kudos to the firefighters who saved Multnomah Falls Lodge from burning! Thank you!
