California wildfires
KENT PORTER, ASSOCIATED PRESS

Wondering how Philomath's firefighters were doing with the task force that headed down to the Santa Rosa, California, area recently to fight fires and protect homes, I gave chief Tom Miller a call to see exactly how many locals and equipment we have down there.

It turns out they were on their way home when I called. Philomath Fire & Rescue sent two personnel and a Type 1 structure engine as part of the Linn and Benton counties task force.

I'm hoping to sit down with those guys next week for a story about their experiences. I'm glad to see they returned home safe. There have been some pretty scary photos and video coming out of that wildfire disaster.
