On August 2, a forest fire broke out in the east of Portland, Oregon. In a matter of hours, the raging flames had burned through roughly 5760 acres of land, forcing authorities to enforce compulsory evacuations from the area.
Besides the vegetation, some property damage was also recorded. State officials say two fires in the north of California have ravaged about 89600 acres of vegetation since the beginning of the year.
