Here is the latest Oregon news from The Associated Press


DUNDEE, Ore. (AP) – Records show a Dundee woman who was killed along with her two children on July 4 had sought an order to keep her husband away from the kids because she considered him dangerous. Police say Randall Engels shot Amy Engels, their two children and himself at the Engelses’ home. A recent divorce filing shows that Amy Engels and the two children had moved to nearby Newberg five weeks earlier.

FLORENCE, Ore. (AP) – A 14-year-old boy is hospitalized in serious condition with burns to his face from an explosion of fireworks and gasoline. Authorities say a group of young people poured gasoline into an underground tank near Florence Wednesday, then tossed in fireworks. The boy has severe burns on his face.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – Regulators are considering changes to the Columbia River Treaty with Canada to account for salmon protection and environmental concerns that weren’t addressed in 1964. The Spokesman-Review reports that the Corps of Engineers and Bonneville Power Administration are reviewing the treaty in consultation with other federal agencies, four Northwest states and 15 tribes.

GOSHEN, Ore. (AP) – Tuesday was a rough day for Katie Sue. The 27-year-old draft horse was rescued by firefighters near Goshen – twice – after getting herself stuck, first in the 4-feet-square opening of a well, and later in the mud. The Register-Guard reports Katie Sue was scraped and exhausted, but was doing fine and grazing as usual by the next day.
