Fire

WASHOUGAL, WA— The Eagle Creek Fire jumped the Columbia River early this morning from Oregon and sparked the Archer Mountain Fire in Skamania County.  At this time, Department of Natural Resources crews are hard at work. This fire is causing some of the smoke and ash that can be seen falling on the Washougal and Camas communities, although most of the ash and debris in the air is coming from Eagle Creek across the Columbia River.

While there are some isolated evacuations in Skamania County, there are currently no fires or evacuations in Clark County or within Washougal city limits.  Please avoid traveling on SR 14 due to heavy congestion.

Clark County has activated the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in partial operations as of this morning, in support of our response partners.
