Effective 6:00 pm today the Evacuation Levels for Number Two and Stiss Canyons to the end of the pavement will be reduced from a Level 2 to a Level 1. The homes beyond the end of the pavement will remain at a Level 2.


The Evacuation Levels in the vicinity of this fire are unchanged at this time.


Progress in suppression efforts has allowed reducing Evacuation Levels for First Creek and Granite Falls Road residents to a Level 2 effective at 6:00 pm today (September 19, 2012).


Evacuation Levels 1, 2, and 3 are akin to a “Ready, Set, Go” level of preparedness with Level 1 asking residents to be ready to evacuate if conditions change, Level 2 meaning residents should be set to go at a moment’s notice, and Level 3 meaning authorities are advising residents to evacuate because their homes are in imminent danger.
