Chetco Bar Fire Announcement

Chetco Bar Fire Evacuation Update - August 31, 9:30 p.m.

Incident: Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/1/2017

Following the advice of the Chetco Bar Incident Management Team, and based on the current fire behavior, the Curry County Sheriff’s Office has expanded a Level 2 Evacuation Order to include all areas along Winchuck River Road east of and include Peavine Ridge Road. Level 2 Evacuation (Be Ready) means residents within this area should be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice. This level indicates there is significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area, or if choosing to remain, to be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice. Residents MAY have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk.

The current Evacuation Map is available at: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/maps/5385/


Brookings Police Department and the Oregon State Police are assisting the Curry County Sheriff’s Office with making notifications to all affected residents within the identified evacuation areas.

Emergency Alerts:

Displaced residents may relocate to an emergency evacuation shelter at the Curry County Fairgrounds showcase building, 29392, Ellensburg Avenue, Gold Beach, Oregon. Travelers in campers and motels are asked to relocate elsewhere along the Oregon coast. Residents should make arrangements to move property and livestock. People with special health needs or other concerns should relocate during the warning.

Residents in Curry County who have a landline will receive emergency notifications via that number. For residents who do not have a landline, or want to receive notifications on a cell phone need to sign up for Emergency Alerts. Curry County residents can sign up for Emergency Alerts on the Curry County website, or directly at https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736723773#/login.
