Suppression Efforts Continue for Big Meadow Fire
Date: August 29, 2009

The Big Meadow Fire in Yosemite National Park and Stanislaus National Forest grew to 3,506 acres today. 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 and Tamarack Flat Campgrounds, Foresta, Old El Portal, and Yosemite View Lodge also remain closed. There is no projected opening date at this time.

Visitors to Yosemite National Park may experience delays on Route 140 due to fire operations.

The fire is 16% contained.
