CHILOQUIN, Ore. -- The Klamath County Sheriff’s Office has begun to issue citations and will make arrests if necessary to keep people out of the level 3 evacuation areas.
They have advised people to evacuate over the last several days. Some have not listened to those warnings and continue to travel within the restricted area. This violates the closure restrictions and interferes with firefighting and lifesaving efforts.
The Klamath County Sheriff's office is advising that if you are in a Level 3 Evacuation Area to please evacuate immediately.
This comes as unnecessary traffic in the area east of Sprague River Rd has been hampering fire response and security.
