UPDATE: MUSSELSHELL COUNTY - Containment lines are beginning to take shape around two wildfires in Musselshell County.
Firefighters battling the Dahl Fire will focus on the northern flank of the fire Thursday morning, in an effort to prevent the flames from spreading north where there's a large number of structures.
Currently one 20-person crew is fighting the blaze, but they're hoping for some relief from four additional crews later Thursday.
Three to five helicopters and two air tankers will assist in the battle.
Some additional evacuations were ordered Wednesday night along the east boundary of the fire.
The Dahl Fire has scorched around 18,750 acres.
There is no containment on the fire, which sparked Tuesday afternoon.
Still, no confirmed numbers on how many homes have been lost to the flames.
Meanwhile, crews will continue mopping up and patroling the Hawk Fire which is burning south of Melstone.
