LANE COUNTY, Ore. -- Governor Kate Brown has called for Lane County fire agencies to respond to structures at the Klondike Fire, which has been declared a conflagration.

Monday morning two Lane County Task Forces planned to assemble at the Goshen Fire Station at 7:15 a.m. These units will respond to help with structure protection at the wildland fire in the Gold Beach area. 

The responding engines include two from Lane Fire, one from South Lane & Mohawk Fire and one from Pleasant Hill Goshen Fire.

The Lane County Task Force is made up of multiple agencies that respond to emergencies within Lane County and the State of Oregon. The team is constantly on stand-by mode during the fire season for fast response to any location the governor calls them to.

The Lane County Fire Defense Board would like this to be a reminder of how dry it is and to be extra careful.

A level three "GO" evacuation is in place for the Oak Flats and Spud Road areas of the Agness community.
