PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A wildfire in the Rowena area prompted the Wasco County Sheriff’s Office to issue a Level 1 evacuation notice on Sunday, but the notice was canceled on Saturday morning.
Level 1 is a “Get Ready” evacuation notice and applies to anyone in the area from 6090 Highway 30 West to 5220 Highway 30 West.
The wildfire is an estimated 10 acres in size.
The Oregon Department of Forestry reported that crews were able to stop the spread of the fire, which is burning mostly grass and scrub oak terrain. The sheriff’s office said the evacuation warning will remain in effect through the night as they monitor the situation.
Firefighters are expected to stay at the scene through the night.
