Sugar Pine/Miles Fire Evacuations Expanded - Update August 6
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.

Level 2 "Be Set": Elk Creek Road between West Branch Elk Creek Road and Alco Creek Road; West Branch Elk Creek Road, 200-block; Takelma Drive, along the north side of Lost Creek Lake; Lewis Road from Highway 62 to the 3000-block; Evergreen Drive and all intersecting roads; Highway 62 between Lewis Road and Prospect Access Road; Cascade Gorge Road, all addresses; Ulrich Road from Highway 62 to the 820-block; Mill Creek Drive between Highway 62 and Prospect Access Road; Snodgrass Lane, all addresses; Mather Road, all addresses; Skookum Lane, all addresses; uninhabited area west of West Branch Elk Creek Road.
