    There is an out of control wildfire burning near Perry South and Street Creek. Both Perry South and Monte Campgrounds are under a level 1 evacuation order along with all homes and properties along the Metolius River near Street Creek between the two campgrounds. Please be prepared to leave.

    The fire is on top – west of Perry South and West of Street Creek but is east of Monte Campground. Perry South and Monte Campgrounds are under a level 1 evacuation order along with the homes near the lake along the Metolius Arm of Billy Chinook. Three Rivers is not under any evacuation orders.

    UPDATE 8/17/17 @ 8:40 PM
    Both fires have calmed down greatly over the last two hours (thankfully). Haystack Reservoir Campground will remain on a level 2 order all other areas including Perry South and Monte Campgrounds will remain on a level 1 evacuation order. Both fires will be evaluated tomorrow but we have made it through the worst part ????
