The Big Hump fire continues to burn in Olympic National Park
Three sisters from the Monastery of St. John the Forerunner, about 10 miles east of Goldendale, race across Highway 97 on Wednesday. The nuns were bringing garden hoses across the highway to fight the fire. They also used rags to beat the flames down near their monastery.
The Monastery Complex fire, burning in Klickitat County, has surpassed 5300 acres
in one day and has garnered FEMA support
