Changes to Evacuations for Sawtooth Fire
Incident: Sawtooth Fire Wildfire
Incident Commanders and the Ravalli County Sheriff's Office have made the decision to lift the Stage 2 Evacuation Notice for residents near the Sawtooth Fire. The Stage 1 Evacuation notice remains in effect and areas formerly under Stage 2 Evacuation Notice will be under Stage 1 effective at 8:00am this morning.
Residents are reminded about the continued potential and risk from the Sawtooth Fire and the possibility that, depending on fire activity, they may need to evacuate again. For this reason, residents are asked to wait to move large items (i.e. horse trailers, campers, and others that may need to be removed again if conditions change).
The Sheriff's office will continue to maintain road blocks to limit traffic to local residents only on Owings Creek Road and Westside Road between the junction with Owings Creek Road, and also the intersection with Roaring Lion Road.
For additional information regarding evacuations, contact the Fire Information Officer at Sawtooth Fire (406) 363-3556 or the Ravalli County EOC at (406) 375-6650.
