Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber flew over the 4,600-acre Dollar Lake Fire on Mount Hood Saturday, witnessing the damage first-hand. He declared a state of emergency because of the growing number of wildfires across the state. The Oregon National Guard was mobilized to help with firefighting efforts. 

The fire is within three miles of the Bull Run Watershed and eighteen miles from the intake of the City of Portland's drinking water. Red Flag Warnings cover the Cascade Range through Sunday.
