The state has issued evacuation orders across the central and southwest regions as the fires resulted in loss of life and property.
Wind continues to fuel the wildfires, with devastating consequences across Oregon. People’s homes, lives & land are at risk. If you are in an evacuation area, please pay close attention & listen to local calls to evacuate — this can save your life & the lives of our firefighters.

Wildfires have also ravaged parts of Washington and California, damaging acres of land and displacing thousands of people.
