10:10pm
North Lincoln Fire Rescue is scrambling and heading to 2509 Three Rocks Road on a report that a kayaker drifting without a paddle (he lost it). The Coast Guard has been called but they say the area in question is probably too shallow for their motorlifeboat.

10:28pm
One fireman says he can see somebody waving a flashlight from out of the dark. Don’t know if it’s the kayaker. Checking to see from the reporting party whether the guy has a cellphone on him.

10:31pm
Fire rescue reports the man’s wife and children are on the south bank of the Salmon River. They say the man is stranded without a paddle. The tide is out so it’s likely the Coast Guard will be prevented from motoring upriver to rescue him. Thus far no word on a Coast Guard helo which could probably pluck him up in 90 seconds. But North Lincoln Fire seems intent to get the job done themselves.

10:36pm
Fire rescue has the area lit up and they can see the kayaker. Now they just have to get enough people together to get out there and grab him.

10:44pm
Rescue Command is now wondering whether access to the kayaker would be easier through Camp Westwind. Others are checking out whether it would be better to use Knight Park on the other side of the river as a staging area.

10:50pm
A group of Westwind staff is walking toward the area where the kayaker is stranded. It’s pitch dark so they need to be able to size up the area to know which direction to come in from – from the south bank or the north bank.

10:53pm
Westwind staff says they’re probably ten minutes away from the kayaker.

10:58pm
Sheriff’s Search and Rescue are with the kayaker.

11:02pm
Sheriff’s Search and Rescue says they’re getting the kayaker back on solid ground. North Lincoln Fire-Rescue can stand down.

The Jewel Road Fire, 15 airline miles southwest of The Dalles, was reported burning Saturday afternoon in grass and brush on Oregon Department of Forestry-protected lands west of Dufer in central Oregon. Fire-fighter from ODF’s Central Oregon District and several cooperators stopped the fire’s spread at 31 acres.

A single-engine air tanker on contract with the Washington Department of Natural Resources flew from Dallesport, Wash., and dropped one load of retardant and three loads of water onto the fire. ODF responded with four engines and a bulldozer, and four additional engines were supplied by the U.S. Forest Service and a rural structural protection district. So a LOT of cooperation to fight the fire in the uplands to Mount Hood.

The fire burned on rolling hills through grass and brush beneath an overstory of pine and oak trees, and was contained by 11:00 p.m. The engine crews were released from the fire by midnight.

Today, four engines and a five-person crew are patrolling the Jewel Road Fire and extinguishing remaining hot spots.

The cause of the Jewel Road Fire has not yet been determined.

No other fires 10 acres in size or larger were reported yesterday on ODF-protected lands.

Statewide Fire Statistics for 2016 on ODF-Protected Lands as of June 26:
Lightning has caused 33 fires that burned 2,126 acres.
There have been 167 human-caused fires that burned 186 acres
Total: 200 fires that burned 2,312 acres

From Lincoln City Police

The Lincoln City Police Department will be conducting a Pedestrian Safety Operation on Thursday July 7, 2016. The safety operation will occur near Hwy 101 and N. 12th Street between the hours of 2:00pm and 5:00pm.

The primary focus of the operation is to raise pedestrian safety awareness. With the use of a decoy pedestrian, the Lincoln City Police Department hopes to raise awareness of drivers and pedestrians through education and enforcement of pedestrian right of way laws.Warning signs will be posted prior to entering the pedestrian safety operation zone, the day before and the day of the operation.

The Lincoln City Police Department is dedicated to enhancing the safety of both the citizens and guests of the city. The safety operations are conducted in an effort to reduce the potential of injuries or death to pedestrians in our city.

Funding for the pedestrian safety operations is made possible through a grant from Oregon Impact and Oregon Department of Transportation.

Lincoln City: Traffic crash at 101 and NE 26th – minor injuries

3:33pm
Traffic crash at 101 and NE 26th in Lincoln City. Large debris field in the highway. Highway is blocked – both directions. All occupants appear to be ambulatory – out and walking around. No injuries.

Lots of oil on the roadway, which is right in front of the fire station. Fire Captain Jim Kusz looked at the oil on the ground, walked over to the station and hauled out some oil absorbent pads and spread them over the spill. Fastest response to an oil spill in the history of Lincoln City.

Find a detour around NE 26th and 101.
