Thread on the #BootlegFire #wildfire in Oregon
Katy O’Hara says the fire is large it’s creating logistical issues.

This incident base at Chiloquin is at the western edge of the fire, where most of the containment is.

Many of the firefighters are camping closer to the Fire.

“We can’t risk the drive time” says O’Hara
At Chiloquin high school, about an hour from the fire, a vendor sells “Bootleg fire” shirts and other souvenirs

We swung by Riverfront Park where there’s a bake sale to raise funds to help people affected by the wildfires. The event was organized by “patriots against racism,” mainly Epilogue Kitchen which has been involved in #BLM organizing. #Oregonfires #santiamfires #oregon #wildfire
The bake sale sold out after 1.5 hours. They are still handing out free masks & anti-racism info, plus registering people to vote. 100% of the proceeds will go to help with wildfire relief. #oregon #salemoregon #santiamfire #oregonfires #wildfire #oregonwildfires #wildfirerelief Image
Approximately 15 people participated in a “[bike] ride for change.” They flew BLM flags and biked around the park. The event was organized in conjunction with the bake sale, by Rian Gayle, a Black, Deaf community leader. #Salem #salemoregon #oregon #BLMprotests #salemor

Homes that are not burned will be coated with smoke and it will be greasy and hard to remove. However, as someone whose family had not one, but two, housefires, (the first was limited to the kitchen where the fridge caugh on fire) I am a bit of an expert
#OregonFires #ForestFires
You will want a lot of Stanley Degreaser. Just fill a garbage barrel with water and degreaser. Put your stuff in it and let it soak. After 20 minutes or so, you can wipe away the smoke and your glasses, plates, etc will be fine
You can't soak paintings but you can wipe them clean with degreaser, just lay a wet cloth on the pictures and then gently dab away the greasy smoke.

Going around the state, I heard many powerful stories of painful losses as the #OregonFires have destroyed countless homes filled with special memories. One of those homes was the house of Aaron Hooker’s mom in southern Oregon.
Lost in the fire that consumed that home was an American flag presented years ago to the family of Vietnam vet Howard Tommy Hooker at his burial. Honored to present a replacement flag to his son Aaron yesterday in Medford. Image
I know every Oregonian who’s lost homes and memories cannot replace either so easily. But I also know I will work 24-7 to get every available dollar of federal aid to help all Oregonians rebuild their lives as quickly as possible.

Yesterday we drove down Oregon HWY 97—the edge of the Two Four Two Fire. The fire has burned over 14,000 acres in Southern Oregon & is 7% contained. Several hot spots burned along the hwy as we passed. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire ImageImageImage
Along the highway, in the Two Four Two Fire zone, a sign reads “No Trespassing, Looters Will Be Shot.” The fire had burned several structures on the property behind the sign. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire #wildfires Image
Along the highway, a team worked to secure power lines. Although the cause of the Two Four Two Fire is still unknown, downed power lines are a common cause of wildfires. #fires #fire #twofourtwofire #OregonFires #OregonWildfires #oregon #wildfire #wildfires #clypiancoverage Image

Most people failed to understand we have a usurpation government (De Facto) occupying our state houses since 1868. The riots, the #OregonFires, the fake virius, 5G weaponry are all orchestrated. The false left vs right is design to keep your eye off the ball. You blame the... Image
.... Elites & I agree. The Elites are pulling the strings from the oval office all the way down to local level, but they need ignorant voters to keep this illegitimate system to stay in power. Keep worshipping Trump, Biden or whoever in office or running for the first time.
As long as you continue to participate in THEIR system... I 110% guarantee more chaos will come. You look for a savior way up in the sky. Our creator gives us the power to choose. We choose to empower this system & now it is imperative we use our power to....

3:00pm and it feels like dusk.... Ash has been falling from the sky for 24 hours now. #OregonFires
update: taken at 4:15pm. Extremely creepy. Ash still falling. My parents are under level 1 evacuation preparation warning. If they get upgraded to Level 2 I'll go and help evacuate them. Just absolutely wild. Have never seen anything like this before.
5:30pm. Corvallis, Oregon. A comparison of what normal light should look like compared to what we're experiencing.
