West Coast Wildfires Rage On

The West Coast is on fire. What’s happening?


More than 30 people have died in ongoing wildfires tearing through California, Oregon, and Washington.

  • The wildfires have devastated the region and displaced hundreds of thousands of area residents.
  • One of the fires in California was allegedly started by a smoke-generating device used for a gender reveal party.
  • Rumors flew last week that other fires in Oregon had been started by antifa activists; these rumors were proven to be false and Facebook pledged to remove content promoting the conspiracy as a result.
