Due to the potential for further wildfire growth, a pre-evacuation notice has been issued for residents living in communities east of the Party Rock wildfire.

Residents living in Riverbend Highlands, Buffalo Creek Road, Three Creeks, Tatanka, Apple Valley, Shumont Estates, and Buffalo Shoals Road north of Moffitt Road are asked to heed the pre-evacuation notice. Those residents need to be prepared as the potential for further fire growth to the northeast, east, and southeast due to predicted high winds.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning over the fire and the surrounding region due to the expected critical fire weather conditions. The warning is in effect until midnight Saturday due to the wind and low relative humidity.
