Evacuation Lifted For Homes In Indian Creek, Idaho

SALMON, Idaho (AP) - Officials with the Lemhi County sheriff's office say people who have been evacuated from their homes near Indian Creek because the Mustang Complex of wildfires can now return home.
    
But the sheriff's office warned in a press release issued Wednesday morning that the area is still under threat of wildfires, and dangerous conditions still exist that could threaten homes and residents. The sheriff's office says people who do return to their homes must be prepared to leave again at a moment's notice, and they should be aware that hazards associated with wildfire will severely limit the county's ability to provide emergency services.
    
The Mustang Complex of fires is burning on more than 450 square miles in the Salmon-Challis National Forest. Evacuations remain in effect along the Highway 93 corridor.
