As Donnell Fire Growth Slows Resources Starting to be Released

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/30/2018 01:33 PM
Bear Valley, CA...The Donnell Fire, currently at 36,335 acres, exhibited moderate fire behavior yesterday with isolated torching, creeping along the forest floor, and minimal fire spread through spotting especially on the northern and eastern sides of the fire. The potential exists for minimal spread to the north and east along the Highlands Creek, Arnot Creek, and Disaster Creek drainages via spotting. While large fire growth is not expected, this area of the fire, with steep, remote terrain, will continue to be the main focus for firefighters as the rest of the fire line is holding well. Crews on other parts of the fire will continue to secure, strengthen and monitor existing containment lines.

Donnell Fire Incident Command Post Moves to Bear Valley

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/28/2018 09:35 AM
Bear Valley, CA...The Donnell Fire area is approximately 36,288 acres and continues to burn on the eastern perimeter into and within the Carson-Iceburg Wilderness. Yesterday the fire continued to slowly burn through mixed conifer, timber understory and the forest floor with very short range spotting into islands of available fuels. The fire burned in a mosaic, patchy pattern versus a continuous flaming front. The main fire camp and incident command post have moved to Bear Valley Mountain Resort to better support the crews working on the north and east sides of the fire. The satellite camp in Kennedy Meadows and command post at Pinecrest School remain to support firefighters working on the southeast side of the fire area.

The Deadly Ferguson Fire's Final Update, 96,901 Acres, 100% Contained & Two Deaths

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/20/2018 07:55 AM
Yosemite, CA...The Ferguson fire is now 100 percent contained and while we have reached a significant milestone there is still more work to be done. Firefighters will continue to patrol, mop-up and repair firelines. During the heat of the day, some interior islands of unburned vegetation will continue to ignite, but they are not a threat to containment lines. Resources continue to assess and remove hazard trees along roads, especially on the Wawona Road between Chinquapin and Tunnel View. The Wawona Road is expected to open on Friday, August 24, at 8am. This will be the final update, unless significant activity occurs.
