LIVINGSTON - Evacuation warnings were lifted this morning for the Pine Creek Fire area.
Road barricades will remain in place on Deep Creek and Luccock Park roads where traffic is restricted to residents only, according to Park County officials. This is because these roads are extremely narrow and firefighters are hauling equipment up and down these roads as they continue to put out hot spots.
The fire remains active and smoke can still be seen.
Officials say they will contact residents with warnings and evacuation notices if the fire becomes a threat to the public again.
The Pine Creek Fire is estimated at 8,050 acres and is 51 percent contained. It is burning on the east side of Paradise Valley in Park County.
