We’re getting reports that the fire in Clayton has flared back up near the origin point, and at least one structure is on fire near the Mercury Ponds on Morgan Territory Road.
This hasn’t been confirmed, but we’re hearing the same thing from a lot of people. Stay tuned.
As of right now, no more evacuations have been ordered.
UPDATE, 9:49pm: Several homes are now being evacuated.
One Claycord commenter says “Just reevacuated my house. Drove to Clayton through pillars of tree fires 30 feet high and embers on the road. I experienced hell.”
Stay tuned. We’ll keep you updated.
UPDATE, 11pm: The fire seems to be under control, but winds are high right now, and they’re apparently the reason the fire sparked back up on Morgan Territory.
