According to Andy stone, director of policy communications, Facebook will remove from its platform the false claim that the Oregon wildfire was deliberately triggered by some groups. Stone tweeted on Saturday that the decision was consistent with Facebook’s efforts to remove content that could cause imminent harm. < p > < p > Facebook added that the platform was an action taken after law enforcement confirmed the rumors & quot; forcing local fire and police agencies to divert resources from fighting fires and protecting the public, Stone said on twitter. He did not say how many posts or accounts would be affected. The FBI Portland division tweeted on Friday that reports of & quot; extremist wildfires in Oregon were untrue and urged people to share only information from trustworthy official sources. &Conspiracy theories and misinformation take up valuable resources from local fire and police agencies working day and night to control these fires, FBI special agent Loren cannon said in a statement. Officials in Oregon said they had received a large number of phone calls saying there were false rumors on the Internet that members of the loosely organized left-wing protest group antifa had been arrested for causing a fire, a rumor that followers of the right-wing qanon conspiracy theory had publicized on social media. &Our 911 dispatchers and professionals are being inundated with requests for information and inquiries, and the allegation that six members of the antifa were arrested for setting fire to Douglas County is an untrue rumor. &Quot; a Facebook post from Douglas County Sheriff’s office said. Oregon authorities warned on Saturday that they were preparing for a massive death, as fires have killed at least 28 people since August and burned nearly 5 million acres of land off the west coast of the United States, many of whom are still missing.
