DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- The last remaining fire evacuation notices have been lifted in Douglas County according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
Because of the current weather conditions and the fire activity, the sheriff's office and the Devil's Knob Complex fire managers have decided to remove all remaining evacuation notices.
"The lifting of the evacuation notices does not indicate that the fires have been extinguished or that fire season has been declared over. Rather the threat to homes in the area has been eliminated to a degree that evacuation orders are no longer necessary," Lt. Brad O'Dell said. “This information comes as a relief to several of our neighbors. It's been a long summer of fire activity.”
The sheriff's office also wants to remind residents to be prepared for any winter events and related emergencies as we head into the fall and winter months. You can learn more by clicking here.
