I had the good fortune to photograph many of the historical farmsteads and abandoned old houses up there.

Molson being the historical treasure that it is deserves to be saved without reservation. Many artifacts/antiques and historical records are in the Molson open air museum.

I am so sad that this has happened in that area. I hope they can get that fire out asap. ASAP.
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

Was just watching the Seattle news. Pretty sure this is the same fire they were talking about. Turns out this was a plane crash on the American side. Pilot perished and the fire has crossed the border into canada.

The plane crash was around one of the fires at Oroville - http://www.castanet.net/edition/news-st ... htm#145947
