A fire that began last night in the Columbia Gorge, near the town of Rowen — six miles from The Dalles — has been declared a “conflagration” by the Governor. This declaration provides extra fire fighting resources. Currently seven homes have been evacuation and 70 structures are ready for possible evacuation.

We’ll get the latest from OPB news reporters in the field.
