"The lifting of the evacuation notices, does not indicate that the fires have been extinguished or that fire season has been declared over, rather the threat to homes in the area has been eliminated to a degree that evacuation orders are no longer necessary," Lt. Brad O'Dell said. โ€œThis information comes as a relief to several of our neighbors. It's been a long summer of fire activity.โ€ Residents who are interested in monitoring fire activity or need information may find the following resources helpful: Devils Knob Complex Fires: Facebook Page: Inciweb: Fire Information: (541) 900-6133 (8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.) Email: Oโ€™Dell noted that as Douglas County enters into the fall and winter seasons, the Sheriff's Office encourages residents to ensure they are prepared for winter events and related emergencies by having an emergency plan and kit.
