HOOD RIVER — Due to increased fire activity on the east end of the fire, the Hood River County Sheriff's Office is making two changes to evacuation levels, adding level 1 evacuation areas to the west of Dee and Hood River, and increasing a level 2 evacuation area east to Viento State Park along the I-84 corridor.

This new Level One area runs from Collins Rd. in Dee at the south end to I-84 on the north end, and includes all areas west of the following lines: Country Club south to Reed Road, running due south to Hwy. 281, continuing along 281 to milepost 12.5, then following the Middle Fork of the Hood River until it comes parallel with the south end of Collins Road. Level One means people should be ready for potential evacuation, and should plan for what they might need to take with them.

A map has been created and will be distributed for zones A4, A5, and A6. No structures are under immediate threat from the fire.

The current Level Two evacuation area on the north-east half of Cascade Locks is being extended east to Viento State Park, staying along the I-84 corridor. This includes the In-lieu site and the whole area of Wyeth. Level Two means that people should be ready to leave at a moment's notice.
