The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office has issued evacuation notices for a number of communities affected by the Eagle Creek and Indian Creek fires. This map shows which areas are under an evacuation order.
An evacuation shelter has been established at the Yoshida Event Center at Harvest Christian Church, 624 SW Halsey, Troutdale.
The Sheriff's Office is constantly assessing the status of the fire, and in coordination with fire officials, will determine when it is safe to start allowing residents to move back into certain locations.
Deputies, Search and Rescue members, and Citizen Patrol volunteers collected contact information from residents as they were being evacuated from Level 3 areas. That information will be used to communicate to residents when evacuation levels have been downgraded or lifted.
