Fire Plane Drops Retardant Above House in John Day!

Lightening fires in John Day!

While visiting family in John Day, we were surprised by a mid afternoon lightening storm. Within a few minutes, several bolts of lightening struck within city limits. Shortly after, we noticed smoke coming from a hill in town. Initially we thought there was just one fire but then realized there were three separate fires in city limits. One of the fires burned very close to homes. Numerous fire personnel responded including several small planes and two fire bombers. At this point, we do not know if any homes were destroyed.
