This morning we are waking up to news that the Eagle Creek fire moved 12 miles in only nine hours overnight. Parts of East Multnomah County are now being evacuated.
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office is working closely with fire and other emergency agencies from around the region to ensure community residents are notified of evacuation status and are getting whatever assistance they might need.
In this time of crisis we send our prayers to those families directly affected by the fire. We also send our thoughts to the firefighters and emergency rescue workers who have been working around the clock to battle this blaze.
