Lincoln City evacuation map

Evacuation levels for Lincoln City have been updated Friday and residents are allowed to return home, but a Level 3 area (get out now), still exists east of Lincoln City.

EVACUATION ZONES MAP

Weather conditions are favorable to firefighters on the front lines and the relative humidity should aid them as they fight to keep the Echo Mountain Complex of wildfires within an established perimeter. Firelines are being constructed and outside help has been incorporated.

From Lincoln County Oregon Emergency Management:

Some evacuation levels have been downgraded.

Downgraded to Level 2 (Get Set) –
Roads end from the beach over to Hwy 101, south to NW 39th and west to ocean. You may return home. Be aware that NW Natural does not have gas back on yet and and electricity may go off and on for the next few days as crews repair lines.

Level 2 and Level 1 notices removed: NW 39th to west side of Devil’s Lake and south through the city of Lincoln City.

If you need transportation back home, contact the Lincoln County Call Center 541-265-0621.

The red area in the image is still level 3 – Get Out

The Echo Mountain Complex Fire is four miles east of Lincoln City on Highway 18.

238 fire personnel are deployed to the area utilizing 11 engines, eight water tenders, eight dozers, 10 hand crews and 44 administrative.

Fire officials say the fire is still very active and dynamic and urge the public to respect road closures as they are in place to protect firefighters and the public’s safety.

  1. Shame on you,you posted this on September 11th of all days, thousands have died on this day 19 years ago.it is tragic and sad about what is going on this world, have a heart,empathy and kindness,we are all humans ,it doesn’t matter what you look like,we all need to come together and help each other. God bless all of our firefighters and brave people are stepping up to help all that are in need and in sorrow and loss,God bless you all

  2. I think this city needs to SERIOUSLY rethink it’s 87 million ill conceived
    urban renewal plan.
    What good is any of that going to do for us if there’s not a city to come to?
    3 days of intermittent power and internet service- that’s the problem that
    needs fixed, evacuations, closed roads, a real tourist destination.
