A mandatory evacuation order remains in effect for residents of Cleveland County.

Firefighters told sister station KOCO that the blaze began near 123rd Street and Cemetery Road in Slaughterville.

The evacuation area is bounded by Highway 9 on the north and Maguire on the south, between 120th and 168th Streets.

Fire crews are still dealing with hot spots and occasional flare ups in that area.

The Cleveland County Sheriff's Office told KOCO that they have re-opened Cemetery and Maguire Roads following Friday's fires.

Deputies still have Etowah and Cedar Lane closed because of downed power lines and hot spots.

At least 100 people were evacuated because of the fire.
