I stopped at the Cascade Library to pick up two books I had on hold. The Cascade Volunteer Fire Department (who could use and deserve donations) is right next to the library. They were on alert, waiting for coordinates. One fire fighter was in town when the call came. He said it should have taken him under a half hour to make it home, but it took a full hour because of all the people watching the fire instead of their driving.
The Friends of the Library was having a book sale. We watched the plume for a few minutes before I went home.
