The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office has confirmed it is allowing some residents evacuated due to the Bridger Foothills Fire to return home permanently unless otherwise notified.

Following are the evacuated areas that can return, according to the GCSO Facebook page:

The Kelly Canyon road closure has been moved from I-90 to the intersection of Bridger Canyon Road. Kelly Canyon and Moffit Gulch residents may return home permanently unless otherwise notified.

The Jackson Creak road closure has been moved from I-90 to the intersection of Jackson Creek Road and Laughing Horse Lane. Residents between those two intersections may return home permanently unless otherwise notified.

Bridger Canyon Road remains closed from Jackson Creek Road to Brackett Creek Road.

It is the goal of the Sheriff’s Office and the Forest Service to get people back to their residences as soon as it is safe to do so.

Please be patient and we will adjust as necessary. We want to ensure we are making decisions that are both in the best interest of the residents and in coordination with the Forest Service.
