In a post on Facebook, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office: said: “Remember when we said rumors make this already difficult incident even harder?
“Rumors spread just like wildfire and now our 9-1-1 dispatchers and professional staff are being overrun with requests for information and inquiries on an UNTRUE rumor that 6 antifa members have been arrested for setting fires in DOUGLAS COUNTY, OREGON.
“THIS IS NOT TRUE! Unfortunately, people are spreading this rumor and it is causing problems.
“Do your part, STOP. SPREADING. RUMORS! Follow official sources of information such as local emergency response websites and pages, government websites and pages and local reputable news outlets.”
