Fire Updates and Resources for House District 39

Representative Christine Drazan

Our community is one again coming together to support our neighbors who have lost their homes, businesses and livestock. We need to work together to keep each other safe and provide assistance to those in the largest need. Thank you to our first responders working hard to protect all our communities. 

Conditions are changing quickly, evacuation orders have been issued for much of the southwest and central areas of our county. The entire cities of Estacada and Molalla have been evacuated. Redland and Potter Road east of Oregon City, Unger Road in the Colton area, Wilhoit and Bird Road in the Molalla area and the Job Corps at Ripplebrook in the Mount Hood National Forest and the Beavercreek area. Most of the southern half of Clackamas County is under a Level 3 evacuation order while Canby, Oregon City and parts of Happy Valley moved to level 2 "Be Set" status this afternoon. I hope everyone will stay safe.
