Deschutes County Sheriff Office Issues Evacuation Notices for Milli Creek Fire

Level 3 Evacuation Order for Crossroads subdivision, Remuda Road, Wildwing Road and Peterson Burn Road08/18/17 

Released by: Deschutes County Sheriff Office

Due to increased fire activity on the Milli Fire located west of Sisters, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office has issued the following evacuation notices.

A Level 3 (Go Now) Evacuation notice is issued for the following areas:

Crossroads Subdivision, residents in the Edgington Road, Remuda Road, Wildwing Road, Peterson Burn Road area.

Level 3: Means "GO" evacuate now. Leave immediately! Danger to your area is current or imminent, and you should evacuation immediately. If you choose to ignore this advisement, you must understand that emergency services may not be available to assist you further. DO NOT delay leaving to gather any belongings or make efforts to protect your home. This will be the last notice you receive.

A Level 2 (Get Set) Evacuation notice for the following areas:

Residents on both sides of Three Creeks Rd (USFS Road 16) from the City of Sisters south to the USFS 1514 Road.

Level 2: Means "BE SET" to evacuate. You must prepare to leave at a moment's notice. This level indicates there is significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntary relocate to a shelter or with family and friends outside of the affected area, or if choosing to remain, to be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice. Residents MAY have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk. This may be the only notice you receive. Emergency services cannot guarantee that they will be able to notify you if conditions rapidly deteriorate. Area media services will be asked to broadcast periodic updates.

This decision was made after consultation with fire managers. We will continue to work with fire managers to ensure public safety and prevent conflicts between citizens and fire operations. We appreciate the cooperation and understanding of residents.
