CORBETT, OR (KPTV) - Deputies found fireworks on a Multnomah County property after neighbors put out a small brush fire in the area on Friday, according to the sheriff's office. 

Neighbors told deputies they heard pops and saw 6-foot flames in the forest in the 1700 block of Northeast Brower Road in Corbett. Deputies responded and said the neighbors used shovels and water to extinguish the flames.

"We are at a loss for words," the sheriff's office said on social media.

Deputies said the fireworks were placed about 100 to 150 yards off the road. Deputies responded on Friday afternoon with help from firefighters in Corbett.

The sheriff's office is conducting high-visibility patrols in rural Multnomah County. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call deputies at their non-emergency line at 503-823-3333. If you see an active fire, call 911.

So it is illegal for anyone other than law enforcement to stop anyone on a public road. Maybe they should tell this to ANTIFA, and BLM

I thought the same thing. Even our law enforcement is hypocritical, as they do what their dear leaders tell them.

So more evidence of some sick individuals intentionally trying to start fires during this historic event. Yet, we have one particular group thats vocalized how they will burn the country to the ground to rule it's ashes. That they've spent months successfully bankrupting our state. That the leadership intentionally allowed it to happen to buy votes. That it's lead to cold blooded murder.

Don't you love how much press this story is getting? Since it contradicts the narrative, it's been swept under the rug. November can't come fast enough. Vote Soros' minions out of office and cast them back into the h*ll-hole they came from.
