Wildfires in Oregon: Names, locations, size, containment


More than 1 million acres of Oregon already torched

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — More than 1 million acres of Oregon were torched by dozens of wildfires that erupted September 7, 2020 when easterly winds roared through the state and put nearly a half-million Oregonians into evacuation zones.

On September 21, the Oregon Department of Forestry announced they were monitoring 10 major fires in the state, down from 17 fires a week ago. More than 7500 personnel have been assigned to fight these fires.

A fire is removed from the list when it is 100% contained.

Here is a list of the biggest fires in Oregon at this time. The acreage and containment are the most recent numbers posted from fire officials around the state.
