Wow, the smoke is only getting worse here. Yucch!
A suspect arrested last evening for starting a brush fire was arrested again after he started 6 more small fires.
On Monday, September 14, 2020 at 3:37a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched with Portland Fire and Rescue to a report of multiple fires burning along the west side of the I-205 freeway. Portland Fire and Rescue extinguished three of them while passing community members put out the other three. All were caught early. No one was injured and no structures were burnt. Officers located Domingo Lopez, Junior walking along the shoulder and arrested him. They seized a lighter as evidence.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###
A suspect was arrested after using a Molotov Cocktail to start a small brush fire.
On Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 4:35p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to assist Portland Fire and Rescue with a brush fire in the 9600 block of East Burnside Street. Officers saw that a section of grass along the I-205 freeway was burning. Firefighters extinguished the fire. No one was injured and no structures were damaged.
About an hour later, East officers were flagged down by a witness who pointed out the suspect in a nearby tent. Officers arrested the suspect, who confirmed he lit the fire with the device.
Officers seized a plastic bottle with a wick as evidence (photos).
Officers booked Domingo Lopez Jr., 45, into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Reckless Burning and Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree. Arson investigators are also doing follow-up to see if other charges are warranted.
I did one with down to virus ratings to keep the house as clear of allergens as I can.Saw a bubba engineered air filter. Get a box fan, get an Air conditioner filter rated to take smoke out, duct tape it to the intake side of the fan, run the fan. Should somewhat help interior air quality. YMMV
Thanks to the Delta Breeze.The smoke is very thick today. Visibility is less than 1/2 mile. Visible haze even across our parking lot.
Fortunately the wind is low, but the forecast suggests the we could have high winds later today/tomorrow which will not be good for the California fires.
I think this is going to be my next project.I did one with down to virus ratings to keep the house as clear of allergens as I can.
I had to go back an I bought two fans, duct taped them front to back and put the filter on the back. Turned them both on high. I removed the back grill off the non-filter one and the front grill off the filter one. Made for a better taping surface.
My wife’s allergies are better and doing the two fans in series ( output of filter fan is input to second fan ) neither fan burned out. Neither fan seems hotter than the other after 36 hours of continuous use.
I suspect if you go with a smoke rated filter those of you in/around the fire/smoke effected areas just might have better indoor aIr quality.
