There's a lot of smoke showing in the Little Yosemite Valley area right now. Anybody know what's going on?

Doesn't look good. Seems like a fire in LYV that is growing.

What a difference does a few days make. Here's the status report of the Meadow Fire just a few days ago (Sept. 4):

“Meadow (37 42.738 x 119 30.541 – Mariposa Co., 7,870’, August 16)This is a remote, hold-over lightning caused fire. Yosemite Fire Module 1 hiked into the fire area September 3. They are mapping, taking weather and monitoring the fire behavior. The fire is approximately 19 acres in size, with sixty percent of the perimeter active. It is creeping through red fir and lodgepole pine, and is surrounded by granite knobs. It is northeast of Mount Starr King and south of Starr King Meadow. Smoke from the fire is visible from many park locations, and in particular, Glacier Point area and in Yosemite Valley during the morning hours. Smoke is likely to continue to be visible until the park receives precipitation.”
