FIRE INCIDENT

A wildfire with three names is just as confusing as to the location and the fire resources it has called upon to respond to contain it.

All evacuations on the Grant County side have been lifted.  Police state evacuations have been reduced to Level 1 and request that all persons stay off of this roadway.

As a reminder, always yield to Fire apparatus,  as firefighters will still be working in the area and because it is the #MoveOver law.
