American Stonehenge survives brush fire

A wild brush fire near Stonehenge, Maryhill, Washington, nearly leapt onto the Stonehenge Memorial museum in the Columbia River basin before being contained. High winds whipped up the flames, which threatened to burn down Sam Hill's Country Store. Though the wildfire scorched over 2500 acres of grassland, the concrete replica of Stonehenge, on a nearby bluff, was unharmed.
