The Wallowa County Sheriff's Office has issued a Level 1 'Be Ready' Evacuation notice for the Grouse Flat area north of Troy due to the Green Ridge Fire burning across the border in Washington. According to a post on the WCSO Facebook page on Thursday, Aug. 12, "Models show the threat of the fire moving south as a front comes in."

The Green Ridge Fire is burning just to the west of where the Lick Creek Fire scorched more than 80,000 acres. So far, the fire has burned more than 25,250 acres and is 15% contained.
