The American Red Cross continues to provide shelter and aid to people displaced by wildfires throughout Oregon.

The Red Cross shelter, established because of level 3 evacuations due to the Chetco Bar Fire in Curry County, has moved from Brookings to Gold Beach, Oregon.

The new shelter location is: Riley Elementary School, 94350 6th St, Gold Beach, OR 97444.

The move was made due to increased firefighting activity in the area of the Brookings shelter and to create more distance between the fire area and the evacuation center.

The Red Cross continues to operate a shelter in Sisters, OR due to the Milli Fire. The Sisters Red Cross Shelter is located at Sisters Middle School, 15200 Hwy 242 (McKenzie Highway), Sisters, OR. The Red Cross is partnering with the Pet Evacuation Team of Central Oregon to provide accommodations for evacuated pets. A representative from the Pet Evacuation Team will be on-site at the Red Cross shelter to answer questions and assist people coming to the shelter.

At all shelters individuals and families affected by the wildfires and in need of shelter assistance are encouraged to simply show up at one of the shelters for help and information.
