Level 3 “Go Now” evacuations have been lifted after the 98 Delta Fire, along with several other fires, broke out in Clatsop County, officials announced Monday. The Oregon Department of Forestry said the 98 Delta Fire, which was the largest of the fires, spanned about 250 acres approximately 10 miles east of Gearhart, where crews are now working on mop-up efforts. The fire, sparked by escaped burn piles and propelled by east winds, led to four homes at the end of Saddle Mountain Country Road being placed under the evacuation order and closed the roadway at the Wawa Mainline Road intersection, authorities said. On Monday, officials reported fire crews “continue to see success on several fires,” after reporting to have “controlled or mostly controlled” other small fires on state and private land Friday.
