Lolo Evacuees Briefly Return to Homes

Posted: Updated:
LOLO CREEK -

Sheriff's and fire officials are allowing some Lolo Creek Complex evacuees to briefly return to their homes to grab valuables and other necessities.

On Wednesday, some evacuees were able to get a temporary permit to return home, but they had to return it in a few hours so officials knew they left the area safely.

Shannon Adkins said she only had a few hours to load up her horse, chickens, and other pets from her six acres off Highway 12 on Monday.

Adkins was able to return today to gather the rest of her animals and bring them to a friend's property in Nine Mile.

Adkins said, "And our friend said, I think you should probably think about making an evacuation plan, and I said I think it's a good idea, then I came up here and the road was closed off and I was like, wait a second… because I'd been here three hours before!"

Adkins said she's thankful she's safe, but it's been expensive to haul animals off her property on such short notice.
