Major US wildfire grows, forces more residents to flee
TRT World says stoked by hot, dry winds, the largest of several dozen Western wildfires have roared through more drought-parched brush and timber in southern Oregon, displacing some 2,000 residents after destroying scores of homes, officials said.
An army of nearly 2,200 personnel battling the so-called Bootleg fire, raging in and around the Fremont-Winema National Forest 400 km south of Portland, increased their containment lines to 25 percent of its perimeter, up from 22 percent the day before, the Oregon Forestry Department reported.
