When the Eagle Creek Fire blew up over Labor Day weekend, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said officials used every available resource to fight it.
The fire quickly doubled in size, and evacuation orders soon followed. People forced to leave the Columbia River Gorge city of Cascade Locks questioned the speed of the initial fire response.
Gov. Brown disagreed with the suggestion that firefighters were slow to react to the fast-growing blaze in the Gorge.
"Absolutely not," Brown responded. "We put all the resources we had on the fire, as quickly as possible."
