So Far Christopher Creek Has Avoided An Impact From Forest Wildfires


Hello again, fellow Creekers.

Well it has certainly been a devastating fire season thus far.

It is really sad all of the devastation that has happened, and even more discouraging is that nearly all of them appear to be man-made and preventable. Here in Christopher Creek we have been very lucky to not have been directly impacted, but there have been three big fires that did get our attention (the Wallow, the Willow and the Wash).

Thankfully, the Wallow is finally under control and the two closer ones to us were taken care of by our great firefighters before they got too out of hand. All, I know is that when I am asked if we are on fire restriction it is pretty easy to say “yes.”

As always, I do need your help with content and stories! For anyone wanting to submit information from the Christopher Creek area for inclusion in our weekly article, please e-mail me at: Any submitted pictures must be full-size (typically around 1MB per picture). The cutoff time for inclusion in Friday’s article is close of business on Monday.

Thanks again for reading the column.
