An Air Quality Alert continues for eastern Douglas County.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has an Air Quality Advisory in place through 5:00 p.m. Friday for the areas near the Rough Patch and Devil’s Knob fire complexes. DEQ said wildfires burning in the region combined with forecast conditions will cause air quality levels to fluctuate and could be at unhealthy levels.
