South Fork Fire Update...Wawona Evacuation Order Has Been Lifted

Wawona, CA...The mandatory evacuation of Wawona has been lifted for residents only on the west side of Chilnualna Creek starting today at 7:00 am. Visitors and residents east of the creek will be able to return tomorrow. Burning operations above Wawona were completed yesterday. Last night’s infrared flight shows significant reduction in heat in the western half of the fire. Firefighters continue to build direct line on the southeast portion of the fire to check the eastern spread and monitor the fireline north of the river.

Crews will continue to mop up (extinguish hot spots on the fire’s edge) and monitor the perimeter of the fire. Aircraft will assist in securing the line as needed.

A chance of thunderstorms continues through today. Storms are predicted to decrease for the rest of the week as temperatures are expected to rise and humidity decreases.

There are currently 581 personnel assigned to the fire: 14 hand crews, 5 helicopters, 15 engines.

Outlook



Planned Actions Line construction in Division J and suppression repair on the west flank of the fire are proceeding well. Strengthening of contingency lines around the community of Wawona have been completed. Natural barriers are being used as much as possible in securing the fires edge in Division J.
Projected Incident Activity 12 hours: Fire remains active along the northeastern edge in Division J. All crews have completed firing operations located east of Wawona and are conducting line holding operations. Crews have been inserted into Division J in an effort to slow the fires eastward progress and redirect it to the north.

24 hours: Secure south edge of fire and keep contained to south fork of Merced, secure west flank.
Remarks A glide path to release resources had begun and resources are being released. Crews continue to hotspot and cold trail southeast portion of the fire in Div. J in an effort to halt the eastern spread of the fire. Thunderstorm activity is expected to continue over the high Sierra for the next couple of days. A combination of air support, direct line construction and natural barriers are the current tactics being implemented to meet protection objectives. The fire is located in the South Fork Drainage of the Merced River.

Current Weather



Weather Concerns Seasonable temperatures hrough Friday with a warming trend beginning this weekend into early next week. Thunderstorms will be possible over the Sierra Nevada generally

from Sequoia National Park northward each afternoon and early evening through Thursday.
