The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the state have awarded millions of dollars in aid and other initiatives to help fire victims.

Most of the wildfires in Oregon are contained, though several aren’t yet: the Riverside fire near Estacada (72% contained), the Thielsen fire in the Diamond Lake area (80% contained) and the Slater fire in Josephine County and Northern California (85% contained).

The state website says FEMA defines homes as single-family, multi-family or manufactured houses.

Destroyed means that only the foundation remains or that two structural components of the home failed (for instance: collapse of the walls and roof) or the home is in imminent danger from a landslide, mudslide or sinkhole.
