I see that the Beachie Creek fire front is just beyond Telperion Farm’s location. I hope that Chis, Lisa, and their critters all got out safely. My wife is in Salem and she said it is raining ash there.
Drove from Portland to Pacific City today (via Newberg/McMinville) and it was crazy how quickly the atmosphere changed by about McMinville.
Marty - any news on the status of their farm?
I don’t have any specific information about Telperion. I am monitoring the Santium (formerly Beachie Creek) fire from afar since it is the one that causing issues in Salem. I noticed that the fire map just includes Telperion farms at the western edge which is why I posted.
I spoke to Chris this morning Telperion Farm is completely burned out. When we talked his home was still burning. The good news is that Chris, Lisa their two dogs and their tenant Ashley are all safe.
Oh that’s terrible news. Glad they all got out safely though.
I was afraid the farm would be in the fire. Glad to hear they got out.
I am so sorry to hear.
So sad to hear that the farm wasn’t spared, glad everyone got out safely.
A gofundme for Chris and Lisa was posted to the BSOP Facebook page
Dang, this is horrible news. At least they were safe.
What a horrible situation for the Kirk’s. I donated to their fund. Thank God they and their dogs are safe. My heart goes out to them.
Roxie was another a big part of Telperion Farms too. Here’s something to get her back on her feet too.
