Fire In Cole Creek Subdivision

A fire blazed through parts of the Cole Creek subdivision Sunday evening, evacuating residents and closing roads. 

The flames sparked shortly before 6.

Residents ran out to help fire officials, but within a half hour, thunderstorm winds spread the blaze and those residents were forced out of the area. 

The fire charred a significant area right off Cole Creek Road. 

Fire officials say the fire threatened multiple structures and homes. 

Authorities blocked off the road at Yellowstone highway, several miles before the fire.

The road block left dozens of residents waiting concerned for their homes and loved ones. 

The fire was mostly put out around 8 pm.
