SKAMANIA COUNTY, WA — As the Archer Mountain fire holds at 209 acres, the Skamania County Sherriff’s Office has reduced several area evacuation notices. A smart and hard-working fire crew has been working tirelessly to put the blaze.

The following evacuation notices are still in place:

Level 2 (Be Ready):

  • Archer Mountain Road (west of Deville Drive)
  • Franz Road
  • Archer Mountain Road (east of Deville Drive)
  • Dim Rill Dale Drive

Archer Mountain Road west of Deville Drive was previously issued a Level 3 (Go!) evacuation notice. Residents who live on Archer Mt. Road east of Deville Drive may return to their homes.  This described area is reduced to a level 2 evacuation notice including Deville Drive and Wakina Road.

Evacuation levels are constantly being evaluated as fire behavior changes.  If the evacuation level is reduced, that information will be posted on the Skamania County Sheriff’s website at

Should it become necessary to increase an evacuation level, residents will be notified in person by Sheriff’s deputies or other emergency personnel.
