Lincoln City Police were active Wednesday night and were patrolling with spotlights in a town evacuated and once again without power.

Pacific Power sent out an alert notifying customers the power would be off until tomorrow morning due to fire personnel wanting to prevent additional fires.

No fire could be seen from Lincoln City’s DMV around 10 p.m., where Homepage staff flew a drone at 350 feet. Highway 101 at the DMV is where a “Road Closed, Active Fire” sign was erected, barring access north.

According to a Pacific Power employee Wednesday night, the fire is “very real” and is out there.

One woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, was stuck at the Lincoln City Community Center, out of gas and worried she may have lost her Panther Creek, Otis home.

“An officer said he would bring me two gallons, so we should be alright,” she said. “I think I saw a Facebook video showing my house is intact.” She said she didn’t really know if her house was safe from the flames, and said many people she knew had lost their homes.

Reports of McDonald’s flame-broiled demise were proven to be exaggerated as the golden arches are still standing, untouched by flames.

Homes on NE Voyage Avenue in north Lincoln City appeared just as homeowners had left them — spared from the fire.

  1. Power is still out and what was a scheduled outage then turned into another repair issue. According to Pacific power they have been let into the area to do repairs but those permissions could be countered at any moment. With the wind changing and cool temps hoping we can start to rebuild and welcome our vacationers back so the community survives this year.

  2. Biggest part of the story of all to me is that there’s no wind in Lincoln city for once, that’s crazy!!!
    I’m saying prayers for everyone effected and thank you to all the first responders, I spent much of my life working on homes all over Lincoln County and know a lot of good people in that area.

  3. Thank you Justin, we evacuated as we were told. How will we know when it is safe to return to our home in Lincoln City? And what route to use to get back home.

  4. have a so. that lives in LC have no idea where he is or if he is safe ease can anybody be more specific on what burned down there and how it is on 33rd and lee st.

  5. Thank you Justin. We saw you setting up your camera on the way out of town yesterday.
    We have desperately wondered how things are going in town. This has lifted our hearts!

  6. Thank you so much Justin. Hearing news specific related my neighborhood at Roads End is so appreciated and I’m so grateful to you. My thoughts and hopes go out to all in the surrounding area.

  7. THANK YOU Justin!!! You are one of our hometown heroes! We would have no idea what’s going on if not for you and your team! Thanks again:-)

  8. Thank you for the update! We are very worried about our neighbors and homes in Roads End. Stay safe. Our thoughts and hopes are with Lincoln City.

  9. We live very close to Voyage Ave, right behind the DMV/Aces Bar. Glad to know our homes are safe. Thank you for the update. Vacationers should stay away and let those that need to rebuild have some elbow room, and access to much needed supplies. Tourists depleted Safeway all summer long, when they were asked to stay home during the pandemic. PLEASE stay home now.
