day with fire crews as they have been working to knock this fire down. in just about 2 hours community members can come here to the ruch community church on upper applegate road. you just heard what those updated evacuation levels are. the forest service tells me theres only about 30 addresses that fall under those evacuations. the sheriffs office says only 2 of those addresses are in that level 3 zone. i'm told those evacuation orders are in a very rural firefight, officials tell me it grew quite a bit overnight going from 400 to 550 acres. heavy smoke is causing alot of concern today as far as seeing the fire from above. they say right now its about 5 percent contained. crews are aggressviely fighting the fire on the ground but theres not much that can be done in the air because of that low visibility. theyre also battling steep terrain and thick vegetation. the big focus is now on the southeast side of the fire which is the direction its moving. as soon as we get an update on those evacuation orders well be sure to let you know. reporting live, emma balkenbush, newswatch 12 [a10]garner complex evacs-fs in the last hour and a half the jackson county sheriff's office
