UPDATE – More Evacuations Ordered in West Mullan Fire Near Superior [AUDIO]

UPDATE - Tuesday, July 16, 8:00 a.m.

Movement by the West Mullan Fire burning not far from Superior has caused more evacuations, according to fire information officer Pat McKelvey.

"There were some more evacuations ordered overnight in the West Mullan Road area," McKelvey said. "The fire burned down the slope towards those homes."

McKelvey said traffic is becoming a problem on I-90.

"Everybody wants to see the fire, see the helicopters working the area, and people are stopping on the side of the road  creating a traffic hazard," McKelvey said. "The Highway Patrol is being very aggressive in keeping people from stopping along the highway, so please don't do that."
Fire Information Officer Pat McKelvey

The fire is still at about 700 acres.
