Columbia River Gorge Fire Update

The Eagle Creek Fire jumped the Columbia River early this morning from Oregon and sparked the Archer Mountain Fire in Skamania County.  At this time, Department of Natural Resources fire crews are working this fire. This fire is causing some of the smoke and ash that can be seen falling on the Washougal community, although most of the ash and debris in the air is coming from the Eagle Creek Fire across the Columbia River. While there are some isolated evacuations in Skamania County, there are currently no fires or evacuations in Clark County or within Washougal city limits.  Please avoid traveling on SR 14 due to heavy congestion.

Clark County has activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in partial operations as of this morning, in support of our response partners.

Current information from Skamania County can be found on the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office page.
