Evacuation Area Re-entry Plan: “ADDITIONAL AREA”

Based upon current fire behavior, availability of resources and in coordination with the Chetco Bar Incident Management Team, the Curry County Sheriff’s Office has reduced the area currently under a Level 3 Evacuation to a Level 2 for the area of Mountain Drive off of the North Bank of the Chetco River Road. All of Mountain Drive including Van Pelt Drive, Thomas Lane, Canyon Drive, E. Cougar Drive, and W. Cougar Drive are now within the Level 2 Evacuation level.


All residences and businesses within this current Evacuation zone previously described will be allowed to return.

All residents that live in this geographic area are asked to present their picture identification to Curry County Sherriff’s Office Staff to receive re-entry materials. Residents must pick up the re-entry materials from 11am to 2pm at Ray’s Market 906 Chetco Ave in Brookings, Oregon.

One re-entry point is established at Da-Tone Rock on the North Bank Chetco River Road. Residents will present the materials they received at Rays Market from the Sheriff’s Office at the established re-entry point.

Residents should remain prepared to evacuate in a moment’s notice in the event the evacuation levels change and residents should not return any large animal’s home at this time.
