Daniel Swain in Washington Post: Thousands evacuated as ‘once in a generation’ fires burn through Oregon

The Oregon Department of Forestry estimated the Almeda Fire has burned 2,500 to 3,000 acres. As of late Tuesday, the fire was at zero percent containment, according to Jackson County Emergency Management.  Also referred to as the Glendower Fire, the blaze started as a brush fire about 14 miles away around Ashland, Ore., before burning up Interstate 5 into Medford, noted Daniel Swain, a climate scientist at UCLA.
