Tualatin Valley Wildfire Alerts

Oregon wildfires smoke

Washington County Fire Information — Updated September 18, 2020 

Our hearts go out to the thousands of people forced to evacuate and those impacted by the wildfires burning throughout our state. Oregon’s usually lush, green landscape is experiencing very dry conditions, which paired with high wind caused a greater risk of fires. There are many wildfires burning across the state, including in parts of Tualatin Valley.

The Chehalem Mountain-Bald Peak Fire burned 875-acres and was fully contained by Monday afternoon. Three barns were lost but all homes, residents and pets were protected. The Powerline Fire near Hagg Lake burned 126-acres before it was contained on Sunday, Sept. 13. No structures were damaged.

Only a small portion of Tualatin Valley has been affected by these fires but safety is our top priority. Air quality is considered very dangerous and health experts recommend staying inside. Due to the poor air quality, many businesses are closed or changing their operations temporarily. Be sure to check conditions and stay safe if you’re going out.

Reminder: Due to COVID-19, masks are still required indoors and in outdoor spaces where 6-feet of space from people outside your household is not possible. COVID-19 information >>>
