We wanted to reach out and let everyone know that the burn ban is still in effect. We have received a high call volume in regards to burning. When the conditions allow, we will look at transitioning to our fall regulations.

Thank you for all the support through the Eagle Creek Fire.

The IFPL has been reduced to level 2 and the Fire Danger to moderate.

UPDATE: Hood River Evacuation Notice – Sept. 18th, 2017 HOOD RIVER, Ore. – Based on the current weather patterns and the corresponding changes in fire behavior, the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office is downgrading evacuation levels for the Hood River Valley. The Hood River Valley will have all evacuation levels lifted. This means zones A4b, A5, A6, A7, B4, B5, B6 and B7 return to normal, pre-fire status. Due to the flash flood advisory for the I-84 corridor, exit 56 all the way west to the county line will remain on Level One notice. This means that the Cascade Locks area, as well as Wyeth and Viento, need to remain ready for the possibility of evacuation. Residents and travelers should also be aware of the potential dangers associated with the flash flood advisory. Vigilance should be maintained, as rocks, trees, and debris could threaten the roadway and some populated areas. All evacuation notices for the public lands around Lost Lake are being lifted. However, all Hood River County Forestlands, Roads, and Trails are closed, as are all U.S. Forestlands north of Mt. Hood and west of Highway 35. Recreational use on these lands is prohibited at this time. Anyone found in this area could face citation, and anyone who enters these areas in violation of the closure may not receive search and rescue assistance if needed. The latest information on evacuation levels continues to be found at hoodriversheriff.com and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The information lines are 541-387-6911 (English) and 541-387-7080 (Spanish).
