August 7, 1941: "At 3:44 P.M. the lookout on High Heaven ridge sighted a splotch of dark gray in the haze below. He located it near a traveled road. Mid-August, the roadside grass tender dry, a live cigarette tossed from a car, and now smoke. The lookout remembered... It was five years later (1938) when the lookout on High Heaven ridge spotted the roadside smoke. As he telephoned the Forest Grove district headquarters of the Northwest Fire Association, he shivered despite the heat. This might be another such disaster. Conditions were about the same. Unless luck was good..." (Lake County Examiner)
