  1. Son and his family had to evacuate their home, fire consumed property, just got out with wife, 2 daughters and dog as fire consumed hillside and their trailer, workshops for their on line businesses and their solar power cells and water system…all gone with family things and family albums..driving to find a hotel in safe area now until they can get back on their property, his name is Chris Reardon cell 541-799-4325

  2. Are people who evacuated in Otis literally gathered on the beach?

    Email from my brother says that, but he may have been figurative, not literal.

    Asking here as I’ve had no response to my texts or phone calls so I assume my brother Eric’s mobile phone battery ran out of juice.

  3. Thank you for asking…We need information on electrical and even more so on air quality, should we be evacuating the city?. The smoke in front of my house on the ocean and Lincoln City periodically turns a real weird orangey red color that has me concerned.

  4. This is the reason why we need a real fire chief not a fake one. We need volunteers quit chasing them off so you can change our tax rate so you can get more paid fire fighters. The chief was running all over looking at the fire instead of running the fires from station 1300 like he should have been doing. He should have had other people driving around reporting back to him on what the fire is doing like what’s supposed to happen. Just general ICS stuff but I guess that you don’t need to know how to run a fire scene to be the fire chief as long as your friends are on the board. Why did ODF kick you out of there and take over?

  5. Obviously you’ve never lived in So Cal… no evacuation necessary…stay inside if at all possible; if you’re healthy, you’ll be fine.

  6. There’s very little in the way of updates. Let a trained reporter go in & report back to worried people. Start a blog where folks can talk with their neighbours. In 24 hrs, we still don’t know how vast the fire is, or if our houses are standing. I’ve looked at satellite photos, but they aren’t that clear. We need timely updates.
