Ash from nearby wildfires fell from the sky in the Portland metropolitan area on Labor Day. A trace amount of ash dusted my car parked at my home in Milwaukie, Ore. The photograph above shows the amount of ash accumulated on my car in four hours on Sep. 4, 2017.
Several wildfires are burning throughout the state of Oregon as of Labor Day. Eagle Creek Fire is currently burning and expanding in the Columbia River Gorge.
