avatar Beach Fire Declared out, Closure Order lifted
January 08, 2021 09:19AM
The Inyo National Forest announces that the Beach Fire, which started by lightning east of Mono Lake last August, has been declared out. The fire was contained at 3,780 acres. The closure order (05-04-54-20-15) for the Beach Fire was in effect until the fire was declared out. Therefore, the closure has expired. This includes forest roads that access the Beach Fire Area, including Navy Beach and the South Tufa Area.

Visitors to the area are advised to remain on trails and roads since this recently burned area will have hazards that include unstable footing. Additionally, by remaining on roads and trails, natural resources, including fragile tufa formations, will have time to recover and stabilize in the upcoming year. This protects habitat for both plants and wildlife.
