NORTH FORK – Sept, 10, 2020 – More favorable conditions and a thick smoke layer continue to moderate fire activity on the west flank which is closest to the communities of North Fork and Bass Lake. Firefighters are taking advantage of these conditions making good progress on developing containment lines and protecting structures.
Dozers and hand crews are extending containment lines from the San Joaquin River north to Castle Peak. They are expanding upon old dozer lines and roads attempting to keep the fire east of Mammoth Pools Road.
Near Cascadel Woods crews are incorporating natural fire breaks such as rocky outcrops and open areas into containment lines. A dozer line has been created around the Marina View Community and is continuing north to Central Camp and Beasore Road.
The Sierra National Forest will host an incident briefing tonight on Facebook Live at 7 pm. Facebook Sierra National Forest
