The rain came Friday in about 2:30 AM. Some of the people took it upon themselves to try to put out the big fire threatening their homes and the city of Molalla. Story here;

Thanks for the update.
Amazing what people can do when they're properly motivated.

That's a great story.

If they had asked for permission, they probably would have been told no, so they didn't ask; they just did it.
