Railroad Fire Update....Hwy 41 Closed Into Yosemite, 1,901 Acres, Community Meeting in Oakhurst Tonight

Oakhurst, CA...There will be a community meeting Thursday, August 31 at the Community Center in Oakhurst at 7 pm. The fire was active yesterday and grew primarily toward the north and east. Firefighters continue to build direct and indirect line to protect the community of Fish Camp, Sugar Pine, and the Yosemite Mountain Ranch. Dry conditions and tree mortality are contributing to fast growth of the fire. A mandatory evacuation has been issued by the Sherriff’s Office to the communities of Fish Camp and Sugar Pine. A Red Cross shelter has been set up at the Community Center in Oakhurst.

Highway 41 has a hard closure north of Cedar Valley Drive to the South Entrance to Yosemite National Park, and Highway 41 south from Wawona to the South Entrance of Yosemite.

Yosemite visitors should use Highway 49 to Highway 140 or 120 for entrance to the National Park. The Summerdale and Big Sandy Campgrounds on the Sierra National Forest are also closed.

Concern is for firefighter safety due to the heat and snags in steep terrain. Temperatures remain above normal with lower relative humidity levels dominating the area. Extreme heat is expected to stay in the area throughout the week.
Resources assigned to the fire include 7 crews, 4 helicopters, 21 engines, 6 dozers, 7 water tenders.

The South Central Sierra Interagency Incident Management Team assumed command of the fire at 1800 August 30, 2017.
