Despite some progress, Warm Springs fire disrupts tribal community
WARM SPRINGS RESERVATION — Ambrose Meanus watched a helicopter drop another load of water onto the smoldering hillside just 200 yards from his front porch.
Firefighters had been working to extinguish it since Friday, the same day Meanus and his family were told to evacuate. Three days later they were back home, but smoke still filled the neighborhood.
"A lot of people are praying for us," said Meanus, 24.
