Numerous wildfires in Oregon have claimed more than 900,000 acres and turned the skies red. If you’re in the area, you’ll likely want to know about evacuations in your county. Here’s a look at maps for Lane, Linn, and Lincoln Counties, many of which are updated live by county officials, along with where to stay tuned for the latest updates. To see updates on all Oregon fires, see Heavy’s story here.
Lane County Evacuation Map
Lane County is referring to the largest fire in the region as the McKenzie/Holiday Farm Fire and posting updates here. Lane County evacuation maps are here and here. (A second one was created because of server demand.) You can also see Lane County’s evacuation map embedded below.
Green means Level 1 (Be Ready), yellow means Level 2 (Be Set), and red means Level 3 (Go.)
At Lane County’s emergency webpage, you can enter your address to confirm if you’re under an evacuation notice. No new evacuation notices have been added since September 9, but that could change, so keep an eye on the latest news.
