Help Cascade Locks Local Businesses affected by the Eagle Creek Fire

Overnight the Eagle Creek Fire in the Columbia River Gorge exploded. People were evacuated and businesses had to close. The little town of Cascade Locks was cut off as I-84 was shut down. For two weeks now, the businesses have been shuttered. These are, for the most part, small locally owned businesses. I've enjoyed having a bite to eat at several of them after hiking or taking a ride on the Gorge Sternwheeler, captained by the mayor of Cascade Locks.
