Level 1 (Be Ready) Evacuation Notice for Route 242
Incident: Rebel Fire Wildfire
Per Lane County Sheriff's Office:
Lane County Emergency Management advises residents and campers along Oregon Route 242 to BE READY to evacuate due to potential fire danger in nearby forests. Specifically, Camp Yale, Foley Hot Springs, Camp White Branch and Camp Melakwa are advised to prepare to evacuate. From these locations the quickest route to safety is west on Route 242 to Highway 126 (also known as the McKenzie Highway). This is the lowest level of evacuation notice to advise people in the area that they may be asked to evacuate if fire behavior worsens over the weekend. For people in proximity to Route 242 this is the time to move people with special needs, large animals, vehicles and equipment.
