The Holiday Farm Fire is now estimated to be 166,573 acres, as of Tuesday. Containment remains at 6%. Currently, 767 people are working to put out the fire.

Coburg Fire Chief and Lane County Defense Board Chief Chad Minter told KEZI 9 News about his experience on the first night of the fire.

At least 315 structures have been destroyed, and structure assessment is continuing.
