Hundreds of thousands of acres are ablaze across the state, with the largest fire, the Chetco Bar fire, burning nearly 143,000 acres of Southwest Oregon as of Saturday. The Oregon Department of Forestry said there are four wildfires, or wildfire complexes, larger than 20,000 acres in the state.
Most of the state's big fires are in the Cascades, spanning from the Washington to California border.
Not too far from Portland, a new fire ignited Saturday afternoon in the Columbia River Gorge, leaving 140 hikers stranded overnight. The Eagle Creek fire quickly spread to the east, growing to about 3,000 acres by Sunday.
Hope you didn't use up all your donation budget on the Harvey victims.
