Bluhduh Fire Near Imnaha..Roads Closed

Just an FYI...fire 2 miles south of Imnaha and closing. 2K acres and growing. Roads to and from Imnaha closed. Main power transmission lines threatened.

Heavy smoke near Joseph and Wallowa Lake from Hurricane Creek fire.

Could be a tough fire year.

Phil

Info tends to be stale...

I was at an overlook and watch several thunderstorms, one of which started this fire, roll south to north up the Imnaha river canyon. That night I experienced the worst wind & lightning storm of my life. The next morning smoke was very thick and visibility very limited.

I guess my timing was good because I was there before and just as the fire started but its disheartening to see so many fires this summer. Riding home yesterday there wasn't one part of the state I rode thru that didn't have smoky skies from several fires.

Thought it was the Evergreen State. Is Wenatchee as smokey as it was last year. It is a bummer of all the areas that have burnt.

Evergreen state?, sure 1/3 of the state is.
No Wen is not as smoky as last year. Why I don't know way way more fires. Fire season seemed to start about one month early this year. It has been so hot and very dry.
Remember everything east of the cascades is brown 7-8 months of the year, heck we're just like you!

I was just being sarcastic when I said the Evergreen State. I went to High School in Omak.

This guy knows what he is talking about! Not to mention all of the revenue and jobs it would create for small communities.....
