Camas landmark goes up in flames

Firefighters make final preparations for the controlled burn of the former Riverside Bowl building in Camas along Northeast Third Avenue. The facility was originally built in 1947, and when it was destroyed on Saturday it was one of the largest practice burns in Camas history with smoke visible from several miles away. Personnel from the Camas and Washougal fire departments and East County Fire and Rescue participated in the training exercise. The fire was still smoldering Monday morning, 48 hours after it began.
