Where The Wildfires Are In The Pacific Northwest


UPDATE (Aug. 21, 2017, 3:04 p.m. P.T.) After a rainy, cool winter and spring, this year’s fire season kicked off June 7 in southern Oregon.

The summer has brought little rainfall, prompting fire protection districts and associations to declare fire season as conditions become drier and the temperatures rise. On Aug. 2, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency as wildfire danger increased across the state.

Below, find a list of this season’s active wildfires in Oregon and southern Washington. This summer is expected to be average for wildfire activity.
