Following the recent rain and snow at higher elevations, Yosemite fire managers have lifted the suspension of burning within communities. While the recent cooler temperatures and precipitation have diminished the threat of wildfire, residents are urged to use caution while conducting hazard reduction burning. Before conducting any residential burning please call the Mariposa County Burn Day information line: (209) 966-1200.

Additionally, park fire managers are planning to resume several park wide fuel reduction pile burning projects. The areas include:
  • Yosemite Valley near the residential area above the court house
  • Yellow Pine campground area
  • Crane Flat campground area
  • South Landing
  • Wawona Road south of the community
  • Dark Hole Fire area near the Lukens trail
  • Woodlot piles in El Portal and Foresta
Smoke may be visible at times from various locations near the projects. All fire activities will be coordinated with Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties Air Pollution Control Districts in accordance with air resource objectives.
