This video just breaks my heart. Marion County Sheriff's Deputies shared this with us of the scene in Mill City. pic.twitter.com/f4aZVr7CQL— John Hendricks (@JohnKPTV) September 8, 2020
It’s changed from orange to red here in Salem. Wild. I’m thinking about everyone who has lost something in the fire, and those who await answers. Stay safe! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/E41v1fGRKF— Kandra Kent (@KandraKPTV) September 8, 2020
Still more eerie images coming in tonight. I have not seen a view like this since the #ChetcoBarFire near Brookings, OR in 2017. These images are the ones that stay with you forever. #OrWx pic.twitter.com/cIIeCEXfyy— Anne Campolongo KPTV (@annecweather) September 9, 2020
(4:15pm) I’m seeing explosive fire behavior on some of the fires burning in western Oregon. Obvious pyrocumulus clouds shooting vertically above the blazes. Not good, and gusty east wind is still driving fire lines & smoke westward. #ORwx pic.twitter.com/l7aiJcOPda— Jeff Forgeron (@WeatherJefe) September 8, 2020
