The sky in Salem, Oregon, was turned red and orange by smoke from the nearby Santiam Canyon wildfires, which destroyed structures and forced thousands to evacuate on September 8, reports said.
Multiple fires were burning in the state on September 9, leading to similarly eerie spectacles in several places.
The blazes have forced evacuations of residents in the Salem area, and local media reported on families making last-minute departures after receiving warnings in early morning hours.
