News Release
Update #5 on Chehalem Mountain-Bald Peak Fire at 2:30 p.m. - 09/12/20

The fire is now estimated at 75% contained. Firefighters working with crews from the Oregon Department of Forestry will be focusing their efforts on hot spots located within a reduced Level 3 evacuation zone. Incident commanders have evaluated the progress of firefighters and have determined that most the Level 3 zones can be significantly decreased to a Level 2 (safe to return). Power still has not been restored to the area. By reducing the Level 3 zones, PGE will be able to access the area to begin the process of restoring power in a controlled manner.

Due to the change in the evacuation Levels, most residents will be allowed to return home. Residents should be aware that firefighters will be working on hot spots throughout the area, and anyone living inside of the Level 2 area needs to remain “set” to go at a moment’s notice. Fire conditions can change quickly, and incident commanders will continue to evaluate progress and may adjust evacuation zones as necessary.
