Oregon Officials Eye Colorado Fires with Caution


Thousands of acres on fire and more than 32,000 evacuations are hitting Colorado.  The Governor calls it Colorado's worst fire season.  And while we watch from Central Oregon, Deschutes County officials say large evacuations have happened here.  Lt. Shane Nelson was a guest on 1110 KBND's “Your Town” today. "I have been on some of the evacuations and let me tell you its heartbreaking to see these folks who've been part of the community for so long and have their whole lives inside their home and their main concern is photographs and memorabilia from their entire family.  And so to see them lose all of that in sometimes just seconds, it’s very heartbreaking."  In Central Oregon, forest officials say we do have similar dry and beetle kill conditions that could grow to very large fires.   To be prepared for a quick evacuation they recommend that you have a plan that includes emergency supplies, important keepsakes, prescription drugs and a plan for your pets and livestock.
