Structural firefighters with the Oregon State Fire Marshals worked tirelessly to save the historic Multnomah Falls Lodge that was built in 1925.

A task force of structural engines and one aerial ladder truck worked in conjunction with a strike team of water tenders to keep the lodge wetted down during the fire storm of falling embers. Large trees nearby were torched but fire crews used hose lines to protect the lodge from the surrounding heat.

Pictures on the Eagle Creek and Indian Creek Fires 2017 Facebook page show the building still standing surrounded by a smokey haze.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
