Potato posse heeds aid appeal after German-American fire
Within hours of the German-American Festival’s Great Potato Salad Disaster of 2014, dozens of volunteers rallied to turn a fiasco into a comeback story. An overheated refrigeration unit sent smoke and flames rolling though a permanent trailer holding 1.5 tons of the German potato salad the fest is known for. The Oregon Fire Department responded to Oak Shade Grove at 5:46 a.m. Friday, just more than 12 hours before gates opened.
