Six fires were reported or found over the weekend within Yosemite National Park. Most fires were due to thunderstorms and lightning activity. The storms were accompanied with rain, hail and light snow.
  • Boundary near Boundary Peak (8,000’) – single tree in red fir, is being monitored and has low potential for growth.
  • South Fork near Cascade Creek (8,100’) – red fir and brush, is being monitored and low to moderate potential for growth.
  • South Landing (6,100’) – ponderosa pine; this low elevation was put out.
  • Yosemite Creek near the Yosemite Creek campground Road (8,020’) – red fir and is being monitored.
  • Parsons within Tuolumne Meadows (8,500’) – single lodgepole pine, is being monitored, and has low potential for growth.
Smoke from these fires may be visible from many locations within the park. Thunderstorm activity is predicted through the coming week and other fires may occur or be found.

The May Fire near May Lake was an out of bounds camp fire and was put out. All visitors are urged to use established campgrounds for fires. When departing please be sure all fires are out.

Additionally, the Fox Fire, near Mariposa, was visible throughout the area. CAL FIRE crews remain on the fire.
