Posted September 01, 2018 05:06:16 If you’re worried about wildfires burning through your backyard, don’t worry about it right now.
A new study suggests that the threat isn’t imminent and could be in the distant future.
The researchers found that a large fire in the Willamette National Forest in Oregon was still burning on Monday, and they said they were “optimistic” that the fire would be contained by the end of the year.
The Willametag National Forest has been battling a long-running drought since 2003, when it began to see the largest wildfire in the state’s history.
