from Lane Co. Sheriff’s Office
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is lifting, effective as of 11:32 a.m. Oct. 24, 2022, the remaining Level 1 “Be Ready” evacuation notices in the Oakridge, Westfir, and High Prairie areas.
“With the rain over the weekend and the great progress that fire crews are making on the Cedar Creek Fire, we are able to lift the remaining evacuation notices in the Oakridge area,” said Lane County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Carl Wilkerson. “This has been a long haul for everyone living in that area and all of us at the Sheriff’s Office appreciate how understanding the community has been, how quickly people moved to evacuate in September, and the cooperation among neighbors during such a challenging time.”
The Cedar Creek Fire continues to burn east of Oakridge.
