RR Fire - out! ~ Creamy Coleslaw ~ Smilebox


Good 51ยบ morning.

The latest on the fire is that it's 100% contained. Yeah! Only structures burned were out buildings. No injuries sustained. And the latest from those in the know is that the fires were started along the I-5 by some vehicle sparking....
Doesn't make sense to me, as I'm sure someone on the road would have witnessed that, but it was on the news.

Here is a synopsis of the fire on day two..

And then here is the Channel 12's report..

Channel 10's report with about 41 photos...

.... but my favorite, Channel 5 KOBI shows a live report from last night's 11 o'clock news .... great fire shots and good info.

Thursday, when the Rogue River fire started, I was at the Josephine County Fair. Went there to specifically see my granddaughter Sami perform with her tumbling group. I made a Smilebox with the pictures from that event, the fair in general, and great shots of a bald eagle from Wildlife Images (animal rescue).
