Tuesday Morning Fire and Evacuation Update [AUDIO]
After Monday's Stage Two evacuation order, residents in Ravalli County conducted themselves in an orderly manner, having been told on Sunday of a potential evacuation.
Sawtooth Fire information officer Greg DeNitto says night operations were conducted on the fire, and that the fire stands now at just over 3,000 acres. He says the Red Cross evacuation center at the First Baptist Church in Hamilton had a quiet night, and the Ravalli County fairgrounds has been opened to care for displaced livestock.
