Columbia Breaks

Fire Interpretive Center


Columbia Breaks Fire Interpretive Center (CBFIC) will inform people of all ages of the historic impact and ecological role of wildland fire; the interaction of fire with human culture; the role of wildland agencies in fire management; and how the public can prevent / reduce the impact of wildfires.

Imagine . . . a wisp of white smoke in the summer woods grows to a black puff. A small spot of flame creeps through the needles and grass, then suddenly leaps to the low-hanging branches of a young pine. Soon a fire is raging through the forest . . .

Like fire, an idea begins as a spark in a creative mind. As it is shared, the idea is fanned and nurtured by enthusiasm. With adequate fuel - or support - it continues to grow until it flares into reality.
