SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- About a week after the Holiday Farm Fire started, fire crews are sharing harrowing new video.

Dashcam video from the first night of the fire shows flames engulfing the area.

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.
