Photo of the day: Last rays

We've had some great summer sunsets the last couple evenings in the Gorge thanks to afternoon clouds building overhead. Forecasts call for scattered thunderstorms in the area this afternoon and tomorrow before a return to clearer skies and stronger wind for the weekend.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
