According to a Reuters report, the wildfire is the largest of at least 10 active wildfires burning across the Pacific Northwest.
More than 1,300 personnel were assigned to battle the wildfire, which is the seventh-largest on record in Oregon since 1900, according to state forestry figures, the news agency reported.
