ESTACADA, OR (KPTV) - People in Clackamas County have posted signs threatening looters in fire zones.
Clackamas County has been devastated by the Riverside Fire, with all county residents under some sort of evacuation level this week.
Towns including Estacada and Colton remained under Level 3 evacuation orders – meaning “go now” – on Saturday.
In those towns, people posted signs threatening possible looters and arsonists. Some signs say, “Looters will be shot” and “Home and Armed U loot we shoot.”
Clackamas County deputies confirmed Saturday they have made two theft-related arrests in the fire zones, one in Mulino and another in the eastern portion of the county.
A huge concern over the last 24 hours: looters. Take a look at these strongly worded signs... We talked to people about protecting their properties and what they’re most worried about right now.
