Six multi-agency “strike teams” were ready to go Monday in case the fire endangers homes, and began “defensible space” preparations around structures.

Agencies responding came from both sides of the river, joining Cascade Locks Fire, Hood River County Sheriff and U.S. Forest Service, included Skamania and Multnomah County Sheriff, and the fire districts and departments from North Bonneville and Skamania, Westside, Wy’east, Hood River, Gresham, and Troutdale.
