Evacuees at county commons

Horses evacuated from Rock Creek Stables, east of the Lincoln City Outlets, graze in pens at Lincoln County Commons in Newport on Sunday. The stable had originally housed horses at the Linn County Expo and Benton County Fairgrounds but moved those animals to the Lincoln County fairgrounds to consolidate resources and allow easier access for boarders. The county opened the grounds to evacuated livestock on Sept. 10. Stable staff was able to begin returning animals on Wednesday after the Level 2 evacuation order was lifted where their barn is located.
