Wildfire rages near Columbia River

Don Ryan, Associated Press

A sternwheeler and kite surfer on the Columbia River are shrouded by smoke as a wildfire burns toward the town of Cascade Locks, Ore. The fire was within two miles of the town, which was placed on evacuation alert. The blaze also has forced the closure of I-84 in both directions.
