Yosemite National Park Fire Update

Yosemite National Park, CA...On Monday June 28, 2021 through July 2, thunderstorms developed over Yosemite National Park creating lightning that ignited 16 fires. Fire managers have been assessing all fires for an appropriate response. Due to the risk of visitor safety and park values the King Fire is being suppressed in the Illilouette Creek drainage and is being controlled by hand crews and helicopters. Four fires, Harden, Pothole and Ridge are out, the remaining fires are burning in high elevation areas located in wilderness ranging from 7,000 to 9,700 feet. The weather is forecasted to be hot and dry through next week with record temperatures throughout the region.





Yosemite National Park is a fire adapted ecosystem. The overall strategy for managing all wildland fires is to provide for the safety of employees and public, as well as protect and enhance natural and cultural resources.

Totally Fake news. There is no drought. There are no Fires. This is all a conspiracy from the Main Stream Media to make you believe that there is a fire going on and a drought.

Trump 2024 and MAGA! Let's put those lying National Forest Service Communists in Jail. Lock them UP!

    It's no surprise there are 17 fires burning. Q is the 17th letter of the Alphabet. That's not a coincidence. Q is sending us a message about Rome burning. This is how we will reinstate Trump and MAGA!

        I saw he was invited. Is he actually coming? I keep looking on Frank to see what it says, but they haven't updated it yet.

          They did... but then they took the post down. I forwarded it to my boss but it was gone by the time he opened the link.

          I think he doesn't want to announce he's coming to CA so far out and give the Libtards time to start a protest or buy out all the tickets.

          I don't think it's big enough to hold one of his rallies. What is he going to draw? 10,000 people? There is no way they are going to get them all inside.

            You might get 5,000 people indoors. But they could do overflow into the outdoor part of the venue over by the medical center. Probabaly another 5,000 over there.

            It says it's 'donar appreciation'. SO it's probably just those who donate $1,000+ to the GOP>.

        The web site still says "Special Guest Appearance." But it has been updated to stay that everone must comply with Homeland Security safety measures as part of the ticketing process. Which I guess is a clue.

This entire thread sounds like the posts were done by the same schizophrenic, only they figured out the time stamp dead give-away...
In other news, Biden's 4th of July message message got 10,000 views. Guess the 81 million who voted for him were too busy to watch.
Meanwhile, Trump packed in 45,000 to his live rally, plenty of others outside. Over 350,000 views on the feed.

    Trump managed to put 45,000 people into a venue that holds 6,000 people? That man is a GOD! Did he stack the bodies, or what?

    I see Biden got about 250,000 views on YouTube. Where is the 10k number from? Or did you just make that up you libtard?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqYam0UGZf8. - 125k on that one alone.

          Lol, because the the feds and national parks let fires continue to burn as a VMP burn, not to mention the more money they spent on fire suppression the more money they receive in their budget! Thus the incentive is to burn baby burn!

        Trump coming to Calaveras County? You can't even get that worthless POS McClintock to show up unless it's right before an election. You rubes thinks he's gonna show up for your measly $500.00 donations, he'll just send you a fundraising letter and you'll fork over that much. It's amazing that you all have been conned into giving money to that grifter who laughs at your stupidity behind you back. Trump is one of the elites, fancy houses, illegal loans, cheating on his taxes and living high on your dime. Your free to get conned it's the American way.
