More than half a million people in the US state of Oregon are fleeing deadly wildfires that are raging across the Pacific Northwest, authorities say.

Fanned by unusually hot, dry winds, dozens of fires are sweeping the state. At least one is being treated as suspected arson.

Governor Kate Brown said the exact number of fatalities was not yet known, though at least four were confirmed.

More than 100 wildfires are currently scorching 12 western US states.

The worst affected are Oregon, California and Washington, where entire towns have been destroyed.

Some 4.4 million acres have been razed, according to the National Interagency Fire Center – an area larger than Connecticut and slightly smaller than Wales.

What is the latest in Oregon?

Gov Brown, a Democrat, said: “We have never seen this amount of uncontained fire across the state… This will not be a one-time event. Unfortunately, it is the bellwether of the future. We’re feeling the acute impacts of climate change.”

      Yea, right. Climate change. What an idiot. What about active arson.

        And isn’t it interesting that those fires go through California up through Oregon and then on up through Washington but stop at the Canadian border. I guess that’s because Canada closed its borders to us. smdh

      they have to have their BS climate change so they can create a global carbon tax to line their pockets. whoops! i mean to save the world with peace and safety.

      Genesis 8:22
      While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

      1 Thessalonians 5:3 KJV -
      For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
