The fire is currently moving towards highway 12 again just west of Mill Creek. The evacuation order came right after a public meeting was held this evening to brief residents on the fire's expansion to 8000 acres.</p><p></p> Wed, 21 Aug 2013 01:30:45 +0000 Sally Mauk 7095 at http://kufm.org More evacuations ordered as Lolo Creek Complex fire grows Residents nervously watch progress of the Lolo Creek Complex fire http://kufm.org/post/residents-nervously-watch-progress-lolo-creek-complex-fire <p>Residents of Sleeman Gulch, a few miles east of the Lolo Creek Complex fire off Highway 12, have been placed on pre-evacuation notice - meaning they need to be ready to leave on the spur of the moment.
