Social media giant Facebook has started removing false claims that the deadly wildfires in Oregon were started by various left-wing and right-wing groups. The latest move comes after the rumours left state officials inundated with queries for information. Since early this week, state officials have been attempting to debunk misinformation on social media that has blamed both left-wing and right-wing groups for the fires.
