September 12, 2020

The wildfires in the western United States left at least 29 lives and dozens missing. Tens of thousands of residents have been forced to leave their homes in California, Oregon, and Washington state.

The most recent fatal incident occurred in Oregon, where a group of people were unable to leave their homes on time in an “incident involving a large number of deaths,” said Andrew Phelps, director of emergency management for Oregon. So far, four deaths have been confirmed.

In the past few hours, the improvement in weather conditions has helped extinction work with lower temperatures, less strong winds, and higher humidity.
