Photos: Oregon wildfires blankets Salem area in smoke
For the last couple days, Oregon and her surrounding neighbors are currently experiencing a huge increase of wildfires; causing people to evacuate their towns and homes.
Salem, Ore., first received a blanket of smoke on Tuesday, Sept. 8.
The Oregon wildfires are scourging over 300,000 acres, with, according to KOIN, two confirmed dead. However, numbers may increase substantially once the fires subside; making this the most deadly wildfire season to date.
Oregon towns that were “substantially destroyed,” said by Gov. Kate Brown at a press conference, by the wildfires include: Detroit, Blue River, Vida, Phoenix, and Talent.
