Cooling Fire Behavior, Some Evacuations Lifted

Fire behavior relaxed considerably as evening approached.  Cooler temperatures, increased humidity, and diminishing winds contributed to the firefighting efforts.  The evacuation area has been reduced. Any residences past Hemlock Lane off Brook Forest Drive will remain evacuated overnight (not to include homes on Hemlock Lane). The rest of the previously evacuated areas are open for residents to return.
If you do not live on the following roads you may return home.
Fawn Path
Weasel Way
Jack Pine Drive
Skunk Alley
Ski Trail
Elk Run
Puma Crest
Lynx Lane
Snowshoe Trail
Bobcat Way
Grouse Lane
Deer Path
Woodchuck Way
Brook Forest - North of Hemlock

Residents are asked to remain vigilant tomorrow and remain ready to evacuate if need be. 
Residents who evacuated animals to either the Fairgrounds or Foothills Animal Shelter are encouraged to leave them there overnight.  Residents will be allowed to bring their animals home tonight if they choose to do so.
