Upper Miller Creek fire update
New information from the DNRC (11:27):
Evacuations for the fire burning east of Lolo and east of the Bitterroot River include Oral Zumwalt Way, Trails End Road up to and including Evans Ridge Road. This is approximately 50-60 homes. The fire is not growing as rapidly as when first reported. An evacuation has been ordered for residents living on Oral Zumwalt Way, Trails End Road, and Evans Ridge Rd, southwest of Miller Creek Road, east of Lolo and east of the Bitterroot River. The fire is approximately 50 acres. Multiple resources from Missoula and Ravalli county, DNRC, the US Forest Service, and several rural departments are on the scene. Nonresidents are asked to not use Upper or Lower Miller Creek Roads at this time so fire equipment can get in and residents on Oral Zumwalt Way can safely leave.
