Notes: In September 1902, dry winds from the east fanned the flames of what became Washington�s largest wildfire, which destroyed more than 370,000 acres. The fire nearly destroyed the small town of Yacolt, but the wind�s direction changed, heading north until it ran out of steam at the Lewis River. Since then, numerous fires�some quite large�repeatedly burned the area until the mid 1950s, hence the name.
