Whitewater Fire Announcement

Level 1 Evacuation for Breitenbush Hot Springs area

Incident: Whitewater Fire Wildfire
Released: 9/19/2017

On Tues. Sept 19, in cooperation with fire officials, the Marion County Sheriff's Office and Marion County Emergency Management, the decision was made to move the Breitenbush Hot Springs and the Breitenbush summer homes to a level 1 or a ready evacuation state.

Recent rainfall has reduced the fire danger, however residents should be cautious when returning home. The continued forecast has called for additional rains and the potential for mudslides in the area.

The Breitenbush area will remain in a level 1 or ready state until the fire danger is no longer of concern which will most likely be sometime this fall or winter.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office would like to thank all of the personnel involved in the firefighting efforts during the Whitewater, Little Devil and Scorpion fires in Marion County.
