Wildfires blazing near you
Pole Creek Fire Day 7
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
The Pole Creek Fire continues to burn outside of Sisters, Oregon. According to Inciweb.org the fire is now at 16,000 acres and is still growing. When we took this photograph we were watching them load the water and take off... These people are trying as hard as they can to get a hold of this fire! As we were standing here, small branches from trees (maybe 3-4 inches long) were literally floating through the air...I picked one up when hit the ground and smelled it... wow did it smell like SMOKE..they were all blackened from the fire.
