As of 7/511 @ 8:25am, HWY 196 is only open to just past Family Dollar (headed towards Airport Rd) and Live Oak Rd. The smoke is VERY heavy, and there is visible ash falling.

@LewisT - so far its contained to the woods between Taylors Creek school and Happy Acres and they say no structures are threatened. Forestry folks are working the woods and the fire department is working the woodline to keep it from reaching the road.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
