RONAN – A new management team took over at the Elmo 2 Fire early Sunday.

Rouse said on Sunday morning that at this time no structures have been reported to have been lost in the blaze and that there are no evacuations in place.

However, Rouse says that residents south of Lake Mary Ronan remain in a pre-evacuation status as a precaution.

Planes and helicopters will continue to work on the fire as long as visibility and weather allows. As a result, Elmo Bay remains closed to boaters.
