### Original release, July 27, 2018: TRAIL, Ore. – Fire officials are recommending “Level 2” residential evacuations in the Elk Creek area. Both the Sugar Pine fire and Miles fire are creating a potential threat to homes in the area. As of Friday, July 27, 2018, a Level 2 (BE SET) advisory is in effect for the following addresses: 8800 to 17600 Elk Creek Road; Sugar Pine Road, all addresses; Dodes Creek road, all addresses. Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies and search and rescue personnel are making in-person notifications. Citizen Alert notifications will also be made by phone to those in the affected area. While homes on Dodes Creek Road and the upper section of Elk Creek Road are still some distance from the fires, officials are concerned that the evacuation route down Elk Creek Road could become compromised if the Sugar Pine fire encroaches toward the intersection of Sugar Pine Road and Elk Creek Road. Residents should consider these concerns when creating their evacuation plans. To sign up for Citizen Alert, go to www.jacksoncounty.org/alert . Information about evacuation levels and preparedness is available at www.rvem.org. A downloadable map of the evacuation area is included with this release.
