Minimal Growth in Big Meadow Fire
Date: August 28, 2009

The Big Meadow Fire in Yosemite National Park grew to 2,244 acres today, increasing from 2,200 acres yesterday. The Big Meadow Fire was set by Yosemite National Park Fire Crews on August 26, 2009 as a prescribed burn and shortly thereafter, the fire grew out of the prescription lines.

The Big Oak Flat Road, from Crane Flat Gas Station to the intersection of El Portal Road and Big Oak Flat Road, remains closed due to fire activity. In addition, Crane Flat Campground and Foresta also remain closed. There is no projected opening date at this time.

Due to increased fire activity on the northern end of the fire, the Tamarack Flat Campground, along the Tioga Road, has been closed.

The fire remains 10% contained.
