The entire fire area saw snow, “which is a huge plus for all of the firefighters who have been engaged for the past 76 days,” said Operations Section Chief Paul Delmerico.

Several evacuation orders were lifted including a mandatory evacuation for the east side of County Road 27 from Masonville to Stove Prairie Schools.
