CURRY COUNTY, Ore. -- All residences and businesses within the current Level 3 evacuation zone starting at the junction of Shady Lane and South Bank Chetco Road east to and including Freeman Rock and Salmon Run Golf Course will be reduced to a Level 2 Evacuation, Curry County Sheriff's Office said as officials continue to battle the Chetco Bar Fire.

The area also includes residents in the Campbell and Harbor Hills road area.

All residents that live in this geographic area are asked to present their picture identification to Curry County Sherriff’s Office staff to receive re-entry materials.

Residents can pick up the re-entry materials from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ray’s Market (906 Chetco Ave.) in Brookings, or any of the re-entry points on South Bank Chetco Road.

One re-entry point has been established at Shady Lane and South Bank Chetco Road. Residents will present the materials received from the Sheriff’s Office at the established re-entry point.
