Oregon Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency Wednesday as wildfire danger increased across the state.
Rising temperatures, high winds and dry conditions are likely to persist through at least the remainder of the week, creating a high chance of wildfires spreading across Oregon.
"As Oregon faces a near record-breaking heatwave, the threat of wildfires increases," Brown said in a statement.
Red flag warnings were issued across the state this week, as temperatures in the Willamette Valley crested 100 degrees in many places.
