Property and business owners have growing concerns as 80 wildfires continue to burn in 13 states in the western part of the country.
According to CNN.com The Bootleg Fire in Oregon has already burned 537 square miles, an area about half the size of the state of Rhode Island.
This is one of 8 large fires burning in Oregon. Meteorologists say as many as 3.5 million people are living in areas that remain under a red flag warning as excessive heat and dry weather mean conditions are dangerous for fire.
People living as far away as Ohio are seeing hazy skies due to the wildfires burning out west.
Here at Sill, the leading public adjusting firm in North America, we have shared regular updates about the situation in the west, and the risk all property owners face.
