On Tuesday, September 8th, 2020, Oregon Governor Kate Brown invoked an emergency act as wildfires burned across the state. These historic wildfires heavily affected 11 counties in Oregon including Clackamas, Marion, Linn, Lincoln, Lane and Douglas. The regions hit hard by multiple wildfires have, to date, burned over a million acres and over 1,000 homes.
