The Forest Service provided an update to the citizens being housed at the school at about 9 am. They shared that the fire is still at zero containment and about 2 miles outside of Packwood. Skate Creek road is closed but they have created a bulldozer line around Timberline. 

As of this time, no structures have been damaged.

The concern is the low humidity, high temps, and high winds expected throughout the day.

If residents need any assistance they are encouraged to come to the school. Lewis County health and safety resources is in charge here at school.  Red Cross, Fire chaplains, the Sherriff's Dept, Salvation Army, and Lewis County Emergency Management are supporting.
