In what is being called an “unprecedented fire event” multiple fires are burning throughout the state of Oregon.
Many are evacuating their homes and the governor has declared a state of emergency.
#PrayforOregon is trending on Twitter.

“This is Talent, OR where my parents live. They have evacuated. It will take a miracle so save their home. 62 years of memories. So if you are the praying kind, for them and everyone whose house and business is still standing from Ashland to Medford”
“Nothing ever like this.”
I spent two very smoky summers in Medford, Oregon.
Nothing ever like this.
My family in the area has been evacuated. My friends in local news are doing heroic work. Thinking of them. pic.twitter.com/H1Pqbdg4Yk
