U.S. 395-B remains closed northbound and southbound between Long Creek at milepost 90 and Mt. Vernon at milepost 120, due to a wildland fire that burned on both sides of the highway near milepost 104.5.
The route was closed yesterday afternoon and through the night. The fire has since moved away from the highway. ODOT is working with the fire incident command staff to assess when U.S. 395 will be safe for motorists. Current issues are hazardous trees, rocks and other debris that could impact travelers.
Highway closure updates will be posted as information becomes available. Avoid this area and use alternate routes. It is unclear what local county, forest service or BLM roads are also impacted. Stay on main state highways if possible.
