'Business as usual' in Camp Sherman
While some popular campgrounds and the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery have been closed due to firefighting operations on the Green Ridge Fire, businesses in Camp Sherman are still open and operating on a "business as usual" basis.
Kathy White of the Camp Sherman Store reported this morning that smoke conditions are not bad in Camp Sherman.
"I can see everywhere; it's just a little hazy," she said.
Folks in Camp Sherman are apparently not letting the 958-acre blaze in the neighborhood phase them.
"Everybody is acting like there's nothing going on," said White. "Which is great, but a little surreal."
Six popular campgrounds remain open along the Metolius River; however three campgrounds are closed: Lower Bridge, Allen Springs, and Pioneer Ford Campgrounds.
A community meeting on the fire is set for 6:30 p.m. on Friday, August 9, at Camp Sherman Community Hall.
