Burning approximately two miles southwest of Lee Vining the Walker Fire remains at 3,676 acres. This is a human-caused fire that is still under investigation. Smoke in the area is the result of several wildfires burning throughout California. Crews continue to make progress improving containment lines as well as mop up, which includes extinguishing interior hot spots to ensure that the fire does not re-ignite.

A BAER (burned area emergency response team) is on the fire to work on fire suppression repair.

Anyone who was in the Walker Lake area on August 14, 2015, is asked to call 760 920-7149 with any information that may pertain to the fire.
