As of Tuesday afternoon August 5, PG&E has restored full commercial power to Yosemite National Park, which had been running on generators due to the Telegraph Fire. Additionally, Cal Fire is reporting that the Telegraph Fire is 100% contained as of this morning.

"We are deeply appreciative of the hard work and perseverance demonstrated by Cal Fire, PG&E, and several other agencies in extinguishing the fire and restoring full power to the park. These people worked tirelessly day and night to ensure the safety of the communities and Yosemite National Park. This was a heroic collaborative effort and we are truly grateful," stated Yosemite National Park Superintendent Mike Tollefson.

The park is seeing beautiful blue sky and enjoying wonderful summer weather. All park facilities, including roads, hiking trails, guest services, and concession facilities are fully open and operational. Good weather is predicted over the next several days and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the beauty of Yosemite National Park.

"It is a wonderful time to visit Yosemite National Park", Tollefson continued. "The meadows are green, Vernal and Nevada Fall are still going strong, and the high country is waiting to be explored."
