DIAMOND LAKE, Ore. – Evacuation notices have been downgraded for the Thielsen Fire at Diamond Lake.

Area residents have been reduced from Level 3 to Level 2.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office asks residents who decide to return to use caution as danger still exists.

"The reduction in these areas does not mean that the danger is gone, but rather, has improved to a level that the Sheriff's Office and fire officials feel comfortable reducing the Level 3 "GO!" notice. Residents, if deciding to return, must continue to monitor official sources of information and be prepared to leave at a moment's notice if the situation changes," said Sgt. Brad O'Dell.

The forest closure issued by the United States Forest Service remains in place.

With this change, there are no longer any Level 3 evacuation notices remaining in Douglas County.

The Thielsen Fire is estimated to be 9,916 acres and 26% contained, as of Tuesday morning. The fire was first discovered Sept. 8. 

A total of 438 people are assigned to the fire, and progress continues. Fire lines are being constructed and secured along the southern and western edges. 

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
