DescriptionLate in the summer of 1951 the Port Angeles and Western Railroad fire (commonly called the Forks fire) killed more than a half billion board feet of timber. An area approximately 20 miles long and 2-1/2 miles wide, covering 32,668 acres, was burned. It included fine virgin timber, thrifty plantations, ranch lands, reproduction areas, advanced young growth, logged-off land, and slashings.
