Photo detail

The charred remains of a Native American home and other structures at the Underwood fishing site at the mouth of the White Salmon River and the Columbia River in Wash. Underwood was once the site of a Native American village that was destroyed when a nearby dam was built. The site was later developed as a fishing site for Native Americans, but some Indians continue to live there, often in substandard conditions, because the government did not replace their homes. The fire in September was caused by a propane leak.
