It is fire season in the Northwest. Fires rage in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. the largest is the Carlton Complex Fire in North Central Washington. At 381 square miles it is the largest in Washington history.

The town of Pateros was in the path of this fire. You can click to get an idea.

The opposite of chaos is the courage and organization of firefighters from across the country coming in to fight this fire. The opposite is the outpouring of help to those affected.

I was considering using this image from the area affected by the Milepost 24 Fire near us last year.

But it is nothing to compare.

So I will leave my header without an image this week.

Our little group challenges each other to post a header to a theme each week. The others are listed in my sidebar.

The images of the western US fires are also appearing on our local TV news. Truly heart rending to see that folks hace lost everything. I hope Washington state gets rain soon!

I am baffled by how many large fires we have, and the destruction is on such a large scale. It is tragic.

It certainly does cause chaos Kathy. What a mess it does make.

Oh, wow, that is sad that so much is burning. Seems all parts of the country are experiencing weird weather and disasters and such. :(
