Sheriff's office advises some Hood River county residents to prepare for possible evacuation for Government Complex Fire

The Hood River County Sheriff's Office is advising residents on Fir Mountain Road east of the irrigation ditch, Fir Mountain Loop and Swyers Drive of a level 1 pre-evacuation notice for the Government Complex Fire. Information for the fire can be found at http://www.inciweb.org/incident/3662/

Road closures are in effect for Fir Mountain Road at Swyers Drive and at Elder Road.

According to the Oregon State Fire Marshall's office: "When you hear the terms evacuation levels I, II or III, remember 'ready, set, go.' Level I means be aware of the fire in your area and start getting ready, Level II means make final preparations and get set to evacuate, and Level III means evacuate immediately — GO NOW."
