News Release
CORRECTION: Update on the Clackamas County Wildfires - 09/12/20

There are currently four fires burning in Clackamas County. The Riverside Fire is currently being managed by the Southwest Federal Incident Management Team #1, please follow them at the Mt. Hood National Forest's Twitter (@mthoodnf) for updates. The three additional fires, managed by the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Office and the Oregon Department of Forestry, are identified as the Dowty Road, Unger Road, and Wilhoit Fires. These three fires have collectively burned an estimated 5,000 acres. 

Fire crews are actively protecting structures and patrolling the area, putting out hotspots.

Evacuation orders have not changed from yesterday. Please continue to check your evacuation level at: https://www.clackamas.us/wildfires.

Our challenges remain reduced visibility, limiting our aerial reconnaissance, and rapidly changing fire conditions. We hope for a break in the weather and better visibility later today.

Please use the resources we’ve provided to monitor the evacuation orders around your home.

Be prepared; know your evacuation level! Level 1: Be ready. Level 2: Be Set. Level 3: GO!
