1 fire at 57 acres, 1 fire at 77 acres.

Effective at 9:00 p.m. tonight, all evacuations and road closures in the area of the Cottage Fire have been lifted. Residents traveling in the area are asked to drive with caution as fire apparatus and personnel continue to work in the area.

Firefighters made an aggressive attack on these fires from the ground and air on the hottest day so far this summer. They were challenged throughout the day with the fire spotting out in front of itself, but were able to stop the forward progress this afternoon. Crews will remain at scene overnight working to strengthen and increase containment lines.

The evacuation center at Junction Elementary School has closed due to lack of use.

Road Closures: Black Butte Rd at Wild Cat Road, Frey Rd at Dersch Rd, C Bar Ranch Road at Dersch Rd, Ash Creek Rd & Parkville Rd
