Items in the news 100 years ago today in Oregon City:

Newspaper clipping reads: "Forest Fires Squelched - Rain puts an end to threatening fires about Oregon City. The steady rain all day Sunday quenched once and for all several forest fires that had started about Oregon City during the past two weeks, probably caused by carelessness on the part of slashers or campers. One fire out above the Clackamas Heights section had reached a rather alarming stage and had burned an area of several acres of valuable timber, when the welcome rains ended the conflagration. It is not thought that there will be any further trouble from forest fires from now on.
