Wildfire Destroys Homes, Burns 2,500 Acres In South-Central Oregon

Quote:
The Moccasin Hill wildfire has burned about 2,500 acres and destroyed up to 20 homes, forcing residents to seek shelter while waiting for federal aid to arrive.
That makes this one of the most destructive fires in Oregon in terms of homes lost for years. Sprague River is a small unincorporated community about 45 miles northeast of Klamath Falls, in the south of the state.

Other fires in recent years have burned quite a bit of acreage in Oregon, but haven't really destroyed that many structures. For example, the 2002 Biscuit Fire that burned 500,000 acres in southwestern Oregon in 2002 destroyed four homes and ten other buildings.
