Evacuation orders for several areas south of Roundup were lifted Monday morning.

The Bobcat fire, which started last Wednesday, prompted evacuation orders for a large area southeast of Roundup.

As of Monday morning, Johnny's Coal Subdivision, Bobcat Lane, Bear Road, Lazy R Way, Deer Lane, Cobie Lane, Johnny's Coal Road, Lennick Road, Beard Road, Crocus Road, Elk, Lane, Smith Road, Outlaw Trail, and Wilson Road are now accessible by residents.

Musselshell County DES asked everyone to please drive slowly as the fire team's plan on Monday was to focus on mop-up around structures and they will be up and down the road system.

There will be multiple areas within the fire smoking, but you are asked to not call 911 to report those types of areas.

The division crews will be patrolling looking for any area of concern. The fire has burned over 29,000 acres and several structures.
