In Oregon, nearly half a million people were ordered to evacuate without knowing if they would find their homes standing upright.



The West of the United States is on fire.

The state of Oregon is affected by the most serious fire in its history: nearly 365,000 ha were devastated by the flames and five towns were almost completely destroyed.

500,000 people had to leave their homes to escape the flames and the unbreathable air.

Refugee in a parking lot, Joy expects the worst: “To be honest, if we have to rebuild, we will rebuild.

If there is no need to rebuild, we will still have a lot of cleaning to do because when we left there was almost two inches of ash.

In the town of Estacada, armed residents returned as soon as the evacuation order was lifted to organize patrols and protect their house from looters.
