SPOKANE, Wash. — Following the devastating wildfire in Medical Lake, one bible camp is already looking ahead to their future.
The Silver Lake community was among the hardest hit by the Gray Fire, which sparked in Medical Lake on Aug. 18, 2023. The fire destroyed hundreds of structures and claimed the life of one person.
The camp was right in the line of the fire but, thankfully, nobody was at the camp at the time the fire hit. In fact, campers and staffers had left the camp just hours before the area would be evacuated because of the fire.
However, parts of the camp were destroyed. Camp officials say they look forward to rebuilding the best summer camp on earth.
KREM 2 photojournalist Dave Somers talked with the camp director about what's next and how they plan to recover.
