Tualatin Valley Alerts


Washington County Fire Information — Updated September 19, 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. Currently, there are no active wildfire alerts in Tualatin Valley.

The Chehalem Mountain-Bald Peak Fire burned 875-acres and was fully contained by Monday Sept. 14. 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. 

As of Saturday, September 19th, air quality in Tualatin Valley is considered “good.” However, we still advise you to check conditions, especially in neighboring counties, 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 >>>
