Donnell Fire 8am Update August 9, 21,097 Acres, 6% Contained, 136 Structures Lost

Pinecrest, CA...The fire pushed further up the Arnot and Disaster Creek drainages to the northeast. The fire crossed Douglas Creek on the north side of Highway 108. Overnight crews continued to make progress constructing dozer and hand lines off the Eagle Meadow (5N01) Road. Increased fire activity is expected today due to the lifting of the inversion layer and stronger southwest winds. Structure protection continues to be the priority along Highway 108 and the Eagle Meadow Road, including protecting the Bennett Juniper.

RECREATION RESIDENCE AND FACILITY UPDATE: As of August 8, at 8:45 PM the Wagner and Riverside recreation tracts and Dardanelle Resort reviews have been completed and all permittees contacted regarding the condition of their cabin/resort. Fourteen of 16 cabins in the Wagner Tract as well as the Dardanelle Store were destroyed in the fire. None of the cabins within the Riverside Tract were destroyed. The assessment team continues to evaluate structure conditions along Highway 108, and the Forest Service is contacting permittees as soon as information is available.

Highway 108 is still closed at Eagle Meadow Road from the west and at the top of Sonora Pass on the east side. The Alpine County Sheriff’s Office has closed the gate at the junction of Highway 4 and Highlands Lake Road (Forest Service Road 8N01). The Pacific Crest Trail has also been closed between Highway 108 and Highway 4 for public safety.



The incident is in Unified Command with Central Coast Interagency Incident Management Team, Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office and Tuolumne County Fire Department.

The fire started at the inlet of Donnell Reservoir and continues to burn along the Middle Fork of the Stanislaus River in steep and inaccessible terrain. It has spread to both sides of Highway 108 near Brightman. The fire is burning north into the Carson Iceberg Wilderness between the Arnot Creek and Disaster Creek drainages and east to Eureka Valley along Highway 108.

Mandatory Evacuations: In effect along Highway 108 from Eagle Meadow Road to Kennedy Meadows (all residences and campgrounds) as well as all along Eagle Meadow Road (5N01) and the Clark Fork Road area. No new mandatory evacuations have been ordered.

Advisory Evacuation for Mill Creek area was put into effect on August 8.

      Jeez, haven't you learned not to tell people your favorite places to go YET? Keep it up and next time you go, you won't be able to camp or your favorite places will be taken, all because you blabbered. Add to that, all the garbage that some of our locals leave and you have no one to blame but yourself, yes it's locals too, and we all know it. A couple of bad apples....
      I know, sad but true.

      Understand your perspective but he is the governor of all of California. There is no room (and thus affordability) for people to live in the south bay anymore and that's where the jobs are. There is also no more room on our highways for people to commute from one and two hours away. The bullet train and commuter trains in general are a solution to still making this employment model/commute work. It's a very different world than what many in the foothills deal with or understand but a fact of the hubs of CA.

    They are letting it burn all the way to Spicer. It is a shame, but you can see from the picture it is more sparsely treed. Hopefully no big winds. For sure all the smoke and particles are not healthy for the water.

          The area east of Spicer is so dense is some places with downed trees from previous fires and no thnning that if it does get there in some places it would be a be a benefit to burn because nobody else is going to clear it out. There is no political BS associated with that, just reality.
