Warm Springs Fire Grows


Pete Springer/OPB

A fire broke out on Warm Springs Reservation over the weekend. The blaze, which officials believe is man made, grew fast and by early Sunday morning Kah-Nee-Ta resort was evacuated. Only one building, an abandoned homestead, has burned, but local fire crews have been dispatched to at least 40 homes.

By tomorrow morning, fire officials expect a Type 2 Incident Team with state-wide resources to relieve exhausted local crews. The fire is near the eastern border of the reservation.

Do you live on or near the Warm Springs Reservation? How has the fire affected you?
