PORTLAND, Ore. — Authorities have rescinded evacuation notices in Multnomah County and the Hood River Valley.

The notices had been issued because of the large wildfire that’s been burning since Labor Day weekend in the Columbia River Gorge. Rain and lower temperatures have reduced the threat.

Though fire danger has eased, rain falling on charred land has spurred a flash-flood advisory. The sheriffs of Multnomah and Hood River counties reminded motorists Monday that landslides are also a possibility, and to be alert for rocks and trees crashing onto roadways.
