Voluntary evacuation orders were issued for Higland Home, Death Valley, Longhorn and Shirleon drives.

The department issued an evacuation warning for Highland Home Road east to Highway 243, including communities of Poppet Flats and Silent Valley. There have been no reported injuries related to the fire other than the two occupants of the auto that crashed on SR-79 and started the fire.
