News Release – June 24, 2019
Effective at 2:00 p.m. today, the mandatory evacuation order that has been in place for several areas in Mackenzie County will be lifted and residents can return to their homes. This is good news for our residents, but it is important to know that the threat of wildfire still exists in Mackenzie County. This is still a high-risk area with a very active wildfire.
Under the current weather conditions, the wildfire isn’t an immediate threat to our residents. However, that could change if certain weather conditions are met.
Mackenzie County remains under evacuation alert and residents must be ready to leave on short notice. Please remain prepared by ensuring your essential items remain ready to go and by leaving your RV or holiday trailer in place until the alert is lifted.
The safety of Mackenzie County residents has been and continues to be, our highest concern.
