All pre-evacuation notices lifted near Desolation Fire


The Crook County Sheriff’s Office has cancelled all fire evacuation notices in the Marks Creek area based on reports from the U.S. Forest Service of normal conditions and no increase in fire behavior on the Desolation Fire northeast of Prineville, officials said Thursday.

At last report, the 4,512-acre fire was 25 percent contained.

Officials said a temporary road closure order remains in effect for all of Mill Creek Wilderness and Forest Service land north of the wilderness, up to and including Forest Roads 27, 2730 and 2745.

The Forest Service indicated that the road closures will end in the next few days as well, according to Crook County Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Vicky Ryan.
