[ARCHIVED] Chehalem Mountain-Bald Peak Wildfire Information

Firefighter working at Chehalem Mountain-Bald Peak Wildfire

Updated 9/9/2020 at 8 p.m.

Firefighters continue to battle a significant wildfire located west of Sherwood and north of Newberg that has threatened multiple structures and required level 3 evacuations for approximately 150 residents. 

Containment lines continue to be strengthened, and incident commanders have declared the fire 50 percent contained. Firefighting efforts were significantly reinforced from an aircraft water drop provided by our agency partners at the Oregon Department of Forestry. 

Deputies from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office went door-to-door for all level 3 evacuations and will notify any level 2 areas in person as well.

Firefighting resources are stretched thin due to multiple regional incidents. Crews will work as quickly as possible to protect structures and contain the fire. Three barns have burned in the fire. No homes have been lost. And no known injuries to livestock. 

This fire is being handled by all local resources (not a conflagration status like other large fires across the state). Download the PulsePoint app to track incidents and their locations.
