FOREST FIRES
STORM SEQUEL
Eleven forest fires, two In La Pino
district, threb near Sisters, and eight
in tho Crescent district, were started
by lightning, presumably during tho
electric storm of Monday night. For
est Supervisor N. O. Jacobson has
announced. Of these, those near
La Pino were practically self-oxtln-gulshed,
the three In the Sisters sec
tion wero controlled with little diffi
culty, and six of tho eight to the
south aro beyond tho danger stage.
Tho remaining two, however, are
still burning vigorously .and Assist
ant Supervisor W. O. Harrlman and
Ranger Ben Smith were sent this
morning to aid Hanger Ralph Snow.
Tho worst conflagration is in lodge
pole, to tbe east of Sellers marsh,
and is dangerous chiefly as a men
ace to adjolnlug pine timber, Mr.
Jacobson states. Tho tires in the
Crescent district gained headway
more rapidly than In other sections,
due to the fact that no 'rain accom
panied tho lightning In that part of
tho forest.
