LANCASTER COUNTY - Fires continue to burn in southern Lancaster County.

On Sunday evening, the fire was raging its way through the Olive Creek WMA in southwest Lancaster County with surrounding fields and woodlands also becoming charred. Fire departments from Gage County, Saline, and Lancaster Counties were on duty to assist while area farmers were also being asked to help out if conditions were safe enough to do so. Farmers ran disks and tank water to those on duty.

A firefighter on scene tells News Channel Nebraska the fire is in between Apple Road and Panama Road in Lancaster County and between SW 72nd Road and SW 100 RD. With winds consistently changing direction, the fire was still not contained as of sunset Sunday night. There is no time table as to when the fire would be contained.

Residents in the area of southwest Lancaster County are being told to evacuate and an evacuation center has ben set up at Lincoln Southwest High School where the American Red Cross and Salvation Army are on scene.

The City of Lincoln remained unthreatened as of 8:00 PM Sunday.

This is a developing story.
