US Forest Services is investigating the cause of a massive fire that burned through a remote forest in Southern Oregon, authorities said.
The fire burned more than 1,200 acres (400 hectares) of the Ninyo National Forest and was burning across the entire region, officials said on Tuesday.
A witness reported the fire and fire crews quickly responded, the U.S. Forest Service said.
There was no immediate word on the cause.
A fire in the forest caused a “significant” loss of property, the agency said.
A total of 2,800 people are believed to have been displaced, including 2,600 in Oregon, officials reported.
The blaze started in a brushy area about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of Bend, Oregon.
