UPDATE (Feb. 16, 3:27 p.m. PST) — The 15-year-old boy charged with igniting the Eagle Creek Fire pleaded guilty Friday morning. 

The teenager — described by his defense attorney as a respectful, polite violin player from a tight-knit, loving family — underwent the juvenile equivalent of pleading guilty to 12 charges, including two counts of burning on forest land, eight counts of reckless burning, one count of criminal mischief and one count of reckless endangerment.

UPDATE (Sunday, Feb. 18, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. PST) — Just when you thought winter was heading for an early retirement this year, Mother Nature is reminding Oregon it's still February.

All 65 people aboard an Aseman Airlines plane were feared dead when it slammed into Mount Dena in central Iran Sunday during a bout of bad weather, authorities told the Iranian state broadcaster.

But there was so much fog and rain that rescue crews had been unable to reach the crash site via helicopter and were hoping a drone could aid in their search, reports IRNA, the country's official news agency.
