TRAIL – Due to increased fire activity on the west side of the Miles/Sugar Pine fire, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is expanding the Level 3 “Go” and Level 2 “Be Set” evacuation zones.  These zones do not contain any residences. 
The new Level 3 area now includes the upper portion of West Branch Elk Creek Road.  The road is already closed to public traffic at the intersection with Elk Creek Road.  A Level 2 area is now located to the west and south of the new Level 3 area.  Because no residences are affected by the new evacuation zones, no evacuation notices or Citizen Alert notifications will be issued.
