Residents who live southwest and west of Robert Lee ? about 65 miles southwest of Abilene ? were told to evacuate Sunday.
The fire is still moving in a north and northwest direction, threatening the city of Robert Lee.
Resources were actively working on building line of defense off State Highway 158. Additional resources came in last night and more are expected this afternoon.
There will be direct attack on both flanks of the Southern (heel end) of the fire today. It is a unified command with Tom Green and Coke County.
These are the areas of mandatory evacuation:
208 South of Robert Lee; Bowen Ranch; Blackburn Canyon Ranch
FM 2662 from six miles east of Highway 208
Lometa Road; Greenland Road; Buffalo Creek Road and Valley View Road
158 West of Robert Lee; Wildcat Road South; Bay View Estates; Edith Estates; Cedar Cove; Arrowhead; Pecan Creek
FM 2034; Sand Lane; Mountain Road; Paint Creek Road and Harmon Road.
Residents who were told to evacuate Saturday due to a massive wildfire are not being allowed home at this time.
Saturday, the Coke County Sheriff's Department required residents in two areas of the county evacuate: those who live near Lake Spence, and those who live on the Robert Lee side of County Road 2662.
A shelter was set up at Bronte High School for those told to leave their homes.
