SALEM, Ore. - ODF is closely tracking 6 major fires in Oregon, down from 17 originally (see table below for details). Fires are removed from the list when they are 100% lined and fire managers are confident in their progress toward containment.

Five of the six major fires still on the landscape have burned 100,000 acres or more in Oregon. One of those massive fires, Lionshead, is the sixth largest fire of the past 100 years in Oregon at 204,367 acres.

For fire season 2020, there have been 886 fires on ODF-protected lands that have burned 543,382 acres. Prior to 2020, the fire season of 1933—which included the first Tillamook Burn—was the worst on record for ODF-protected lands, with the loss of approximately 340,000 acres. Across all lands in Oregon, there have been 1,995 fires for 1,045,536 acres burned.

Remember that fire season isn’t over yet, which means backyard burning and other restrictions are still in effect on ODF-protected lands. Check the public fire restrictions map to see current restrictions for your area.
