Rowena Fire: Level 3 Evacuations Changed To Level 1; Residents Can Return

Just received from Rowena Fire officials: Incident commanders and the Wasco County Sheriff’s Office have determined that all 740 residences that had been under a Level 1 or Level 3 evacuation order are now at Level 1…or “be ready to leave.” All residents may return to their homes, but are asked to be alert for changing conditions. Roadblocks on Highway 30 West have been reduced and there will be no through traffic on Highway 30 between the addresses of 4877 and 5220.

Residents living to the east of 4877 Highway 30, the intersection with Adeline Way, should access their homes via Interstate 84 exit 82. This includes Tooley Terrace, Adeline Way, and Simonellli Road.

Residents living to the west of 5220 Highway 30 should access their homes via Interstate 84 exit 76.
