The Oregon Coast – FIRE Updates updated as Received

9/9 12:45 BREAKING—–Lincoln City residents living from Northwest 40th Street all the way north from the ocean to East Devils Lake Road are now under Level 3 “Go Now” Evacuation Notice.
As several fires burn in Lincoln County, many residents of Lincoln City are now under evacuation orders to leave immediately, and the rest of the city needs to be ready to do so.
Lincoln County Emergency Management announced late Wednesday morning that residents living from Northwest 40th Street all the way north from the ocean to East Devils Lake Road are now under Level 3 “Go Now” Evacuation Notice.
Meanwhile, Lincoln City residents living Northwest 40th south to East Devils Lake, the Safeway to the Outlet Mall, are under a Level 2 “Get Set” Evacuation Notice.
The evacuation point is at Oregon Coast Community College in South Beach and buses are being staged at the Safeway and Lincoln City Community Center for those who need a ride out.
For those driving, Highway 101 northbound is closed from Kernville to Highway 18 for essential travel only, as of 10:46 a.m.

Thousands of Oregonians were evacuated from their homes Tuesday, as conditions led to a spate of surging wildfires state officials said is unprecedented in modern memory.

 

Three wildfires are burning off of Highway 18 near Lincoln City. Portions of Echo Mountain Road are under Level 3 and Level 1 evacuation notices, and portions of Kimberling Mountain Road along Highway 18 also report Level 3, 2, and 1 evacuation orders.

Highway 18 (to Lincoln City) Wildfire Information:

A fire along Highway 18 (which runs between the Willamette Valley and Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast) has closed the highway between mileposts 8 and 10. Drivers must find an alternate route to reach the Oregon Coast at this time.

With strong westward gusts pushing established fires over the crest of the Cascades, and setting off still more fires, officials said they were so focused on protecting lives and property that suppressing the blazes consuming hundreds of thousands of acres would have to wait.

As of 8 a.m. Tuesday, a fire near Waldport remains contained, though residents of nearby Swisshome were issued a mandatory evacuation early this morning for an unrelated fire.

Those leaving the area have few available routes, as downed trees and powerlines have closed Highway 101 north of Depoe Bay and Highway 34 from mileposts 4-5. Mileposts 7-10 are closed along Highway 18.
