News Release
Evacuation Level for Certain Residents Near McKenzie Bridge Downgraded - 09/14/20

The evacuation level for certain residents in the McKenzie Bridge area has been downgraded from a Level 3 (GO NOW) to a Level 2 (Be Set). The downgraded area includes:

  • McKenzie River Drive east of the Community Center
  • Highway 126 east of Harbick’s Inn at milepost 47

 

The evacuation level remains at LEVEL 3 GO NOW for East and West King Road, Caddis Lane, Mill Creek north of Highway 126, Highway 126 west of Harbick’s Inn, and McKenzie River Drive west of the Community Center.

 

Residents should be aware that the change to Level 2 (Be Set) reflects that fire danger has only subsided in that area enough to allow residents access to the area so they can make additional preparations for their homes, livestock or other animals. They should expect that if fire behavior increases these areas may return to Level 3 (GO NOW) and residents must be able to leave again at a moment’s notice.

 

Level 2 (Be Set) means there is significant danger to your area and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area and be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice. Emergency responders may not have time to provide you with additional notice if danger increases.

 

Please continue to monitor cell phones, landlines, local media and lanecounty.org/mckenzie fire for evacuation updates.
