PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Level Two evacuation notice was issued Tuesday night for areas around Marks Creek and Mt. Bachelor Academy, in Crook County, due to the Desolation Fire. Level two means residents need to "be set" to leave.

 

The Ochoco National Forest also issued a temporary closure order for a hiking trail and campground in the Mill Creek Wilderness. It prohibits public use of Wildcat Trail #833 and Whistler Campground until the area is deemed safe. Click HERE for more details.

 

The Desolation Fire was first spotted Saturday; as of Tuesday night it was estimated at about 300 acres. Over the last couple of days, air tankers dropped seven loads of retardant, in an effort to confine and contain the blaze. Those lines were also reinforced with water drops from aircraft.
