The Donnell Fire Now 28,302 Acres, 20% Contained & 135 Structures Destroyed

Pinecrest, CA...Additional firefighters arrived throughout the day on Sunday. These crews will bolster those already making good progress on the fire. Last night, crews were able to contain a 20 acre spot fire in the Eagle Creek drainage, about 2 miles north of Eagle Meadow. Today line construction will continue from the Bennett Juniper to Highway 108, completing line on the southeast corner of the fire. Eastern progression of the fire has slowed. The fire remains about a half mile from Kennedy Meadows, on the north side of Highway 108. Wildland Fire Use crews spiked out (self-contained units staying on site) in the west side of the fire will continue cutting hand line today. Residual heat and fire damaged trees remain a hazard for crews mopping up around structures along Highway 108.





RECREATION RESIDENCE AND FACILITY UPDATE: Initial fire assessments have been completed for all recreation residence tracts along the108 corridor. All permittees have been contacted regarding the condition of their cabin/resort. The main store and lodge of the Dardanelle Resort, 14 of 16 cabins in the Wagner Tract, 36 of 57 cabins in the Brightman Tract, 2 of 2 cabins in the Buena Vista Tract, and 1 of 10 cabins in the Bone Springs Tract were destroyed by the fire. No structures have been reported lost at Baker Station or within Riverside, Cedar Grove, Deadman, Baker, East Douglas, West Douglas, and Twin Buttes Tracts. Firefighters continue to patrol and protect structures within the fire perimeter. Active fire and hazard trees are still present and a potential threat.

Forest Closures: The area includes the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness on the Summit and Calaveras Ranger Districts as well as Spicer Reservoir. Campgrounds are open, but the lake is closed to visitor use. 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.

Mandatory Evacuations: Still 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: Mill Creek area was put into effect on August 8th.
