The Alice Creek Fire is moving east above Elk Meadows: Evergreen subdivision. Firefighters are responding. The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's Office just put this announcement out:

As of now, we are evacuating homes along highway 200, mile post 92 east to Highway 435/434. The evacuations are mandatory.

Highway 200 is temporarily closed east of Lincoln at the intersection of Highway 279 that travels to Helena. The EAST end of the temporary block is Highway 287, the road that travels to I-15, Augusta and Glacier Park. We are working with the Montana Department of Transportation to block off private driveways all along the evacuated area. When this is accomplished, we will reopen the highway.

A temporary shelter being opened up at the Wolf Creek School.
