LETTER: Community shines amid tragic fire in the Gorge
A very big thank you to our community's first line responders who are battling the Eagle Creek Fire. The Corbett community, as demonstrated by Corbett Volunteer Fire District, is strong and resilient.
It has been heartwarming to see residents from across East Multnomah County step up to provide support for neighbors, volunteering to provide shelter and rest in many ways. When Multnomah Falls Lodge was threatened, Gresham Fire stepped up. When a shelter location was needed, Mt. Hood Community College was there. When goods or services were needed, businesses throughout Troutdale, Fairview and Gresham donated resources.
Amidst the smoke, while we continue to pray for rain and the safety of the fire crews, it is a breath of fresh air to be reminded of what makes our community great.
