From The Dalles Optimist -- Mid Columbian, Aug 18, 1966: "First casualties of the fire, which sent the Lyle Volunteer Fire Department into action immediately, were two small houses that had been moved to a city lot but were unoccupied. At about 4 a.m., Saturday, an empty hay barn about 1/2 mile distant caught fire from a sudden flare-up in the grass and was burned to the ground, said Klickitat County Deputy Sheriff Robert Simpson, stationed at Lyle."
"Several large ranches were on the perimeter of the fire when it was brought under control but were not damaged."
"A stiff west wind made the fire difficult to control, but it died down during the night and the workers took advantage of eight Cats for fire lines and other duties.
One crew came from the honor camp at Randal, some distance from Lyle, and others from Larch Mountain, and Washougal. All brought their own tents and mess kitchens."
"Firemen also were supplied by the Glenwood and Goldendale stations of the Department of Natural Resources, and a fire team was sent by the department’s station at Elbe."
My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
