Letter from Beaverhead County Sheriff Paul Craft.
Based on information received from the Southeast Blue Team, it has been decided that all
evacuation notices around the Alder Creek and Christensen fire be rescinded. Containment lines and weather conditions are favorable for this decision. Although the eminent threat in the area has been reduced, residents in the vicinity of the Alder Creek and Christensen fires are urged to remain vigilant to the ever changing conditions on these fires.
This change in evacuations will go into effect at 8:00 am on August 18, 2021.
Please remember that Beaverhead County is under Stage 2 fire restrictions. Fire are only
