California Interagency Incident Management Team #4

As of 08-26-18 at 3:00 pm, The Curry County Sheriff’s Office announced that Agness residents in the Agness Zone are now in a Level 2 Closure. This decision was made in cooperation with the California Interagency Incident Management Team #4, due to the fire location and progression reaching the Management Evaluation Point of Sliver Peak Ridge Trail.

The area to be notified will be starting on the south side of the Rogue River along the Agness Road #33 at Spud Road and those residents on Spud Road just west of the Illinois River Bridge and east to the Coon Rock Bridge that crosses the Rogue River just above Agness. Down river on the north side of the Rogue River from junction #33 to the #375 road into Old Agness and all residences along the #375 road. All residents along Oak Flat Road #270 will be notified of the Level 2 Closure.

East of the Coon Rock Bridge where the #33 Road meets the #375 Road will remain a Level 1 at this time. The area west of Spud Road off the #33 Road to Wildhorse will remain Level 1 at this time.
