A special thanks to the Good Samaritans driving on Interstate 5 in Marion County, Oregon who jumped into action when they noticed a fire burning on the side of the road! Morgan Woodford said she was stuck in traffic near The Enchanted Forest when she saw the fire on a nearby hill. She grabbed a water bottle and jumped out of her car to pour the liquid on the flames. When it wasn't enough, she started asking everyone else stuck in traffic for help. Then something amazing happened. One by one people threw water bottles while one lady jumped out with an entire case of water. Then a driver showed up with a fire extinguisher. Together, the drivers were able to keep the flames from spreading any further. Over the weekend, the high temperature reached 113 degrees in Salem, Oregon. (KOIN News)
