HOOD RIVER, OR (KPTV) -

Hood River County schools announced early closures Thursday due to poor air quality from the Eagle Creek Fire. Administrators then canceled all classes for Friday. 

The fire was not directly threatening any schools in the Hood River area, but increased fire activity on the east side of the fire has created worsening environmental conditions.

Schools closed two hours early Thursday, with all bus routes and drop-off times two hours earlier than normal.

By Thursday evening, the district sent out an alert that classes were canceled for Friday. 

All Hood River County School District and community education activities scheduled for the afternoon and evening were also canceled.
