The Donnell Fire Grows to 31,369 Acres, Containment Climbs to 36%

Pinecrest, CA...It was a relatively quiet night on the fire. The western edge showed little spread. Yesterday crews were able to get a good line in and made significant progress with containment in this area. Today, additional crews and aircraft are working to complete the line near Spicer Reservoir. A small portion of the fire remains active north of Highway 108 and Kennedy Meadows due to steep rugged terrain and patchy vegetation. Crews are working to complete the last short segment of containment line south of Highway 108 between Douglas Picnic Area and the Bennett Juniper. Portable pumps and hose were brought in to support hand crews. Mop up and suppression repair continues along the southern fire boundary. Drier weather, lower humidity and increased west to southwesterly winds may intensify fire activity this afternoon. With very low fuel moisture and limited recovery overnight, vegetation continues to burn for extended periods. Today is the fifth anniversary of the Rim Fire, the largest wildfire to occur in the Sierra Nevada. Half a decade later, local staff continues to work on restoration efforts.


On August 15th from the Spicer Spillway




Current Closures:

August 4: California Highway Patrol closed Highway 108 at Eagle Meadow Road from the west and at the top of Sonora Pass on the east side.

August 6: U.S. Forest Service closed the Pacific Crest Trail between Highway 108 and Highway 4 for public safety.

August 9: Alpine County Sheriff’s Office closed the gate at the junction of Highway 4 and Highland Lakes Road (Forest Service Road 8N01).

August 9: U.S. Forest Service signed the Fire Closure Order restricting public access within and adjacent to the fire.

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.

    log it graze it or watch it burn. if you do not support the first 2 you have no right to complain about the 3rd nor what goes along with it. it is just that simple.

Slowly but surely containment is growing on this one and the others. Prayers that this may be the last this summer and for all those fighting on the front lines.

    Actually, fire season is just beginning up here in the timber. Look at history, our most deviststing fires are in late August/September.

    BTW, this one was COMPLETLY avoidable.
