Government flats complex fire

Hood River News readers and community members submitted these colorful images of the Government Flats Complex fires burning east of Hood River County, southwest of The Dalles. The images show what the fire was like from all angles, including a distant shot from the north, with Mount Hood in the background and an up-close view of an aerial attack plane dropping a huge load of bright red retardant. From the Hood River side of the action, views of an eerie layer of smoke drifting over the valley dominated the skyline on Wednesday, when winds shifted and blew from the east.
