South Fork Fire Mandatory Evacuation Order for Residents of Wawona

Wawona, CA...Evacuation order is for all areas east of Highway 41 along Chilnualna Falls Rd. and Forest Dr. Residents and visitors must vacate by 4:00 pm today. Red Cross Shelter at Tenaya Lodge. Community meeting will be held at Tenaya Lodge at 6PM. Fire activity increased yesterday primarily due to downdraft winds from thunderstorms. The area east of Highway 41 on Forest Dr. and Chilnualna Falls Rd. is closed to visitors and guests. Permanent residents are advised to be ready to evacuate within 12-24 hours, however they should be ready to leave with shorter notice if conditions warrant. There will be a community meeting at the Wawona Community Center at 6pm on Saturday August 19th. Air quality specialists will be present to answer questions from residents regarding smoke in the community.

Today, crews will work to contain the spot fires that occurred late yesterday afternoon and evening. Aircraft will assist ground crews when conditions warrant after the inversion lifts and smoke clears. Strategic objectives remain the same: utilize air and ground resources to hold the western and southern flanks while monitoring the northern and eastern edges. Minimal Impact Suppression Tactics are being used in the Yosemite Wilderness to manage the area of the fire, using natural barriers such as rocks or streams, trails, and other minimal disturbance methods to contain the fire.

Smoke will continue to affect the Wawona area, particularly in the evenings and mornings. Community members who are sensitive to smoke should consult their physician and may want remain indoors or leave the area in periods of heavy smoke. Residents can monitor the air quality links below for current information.

A chance of thunderstorms will be possible over the Sierra Nevada each afternoon and evening into early next week.

There are currently 528 personnel assigned to the fire: 13 hand crews, 7 helicopters, 11 engines, 3 air tankers.

Oh no, a community meeting? I think I left that thing over there just don't try to handle it, but I hope everyone's property and personal safety is ok. This fire thing scares me more and more everyday. Prayers are with you my friends.
