Yosemite Control Burn Update

YOSEMITE – The jackpot burning at Crane Flat a couple weeks ago was very successful with approximately 340 acres burned. This week fire crews have been continuing work in the Mariposa Grove, Merced Grove, El Portal woodlot, and the Foresta burn pile.

Conditions dependent, we are starting to assess some of the Studhorse units for burning mid-March. These units are located southeast of the community of Wawona and north of the Wawona Road (Hwy 41), approximately two miles northwest of the Mariposa Grove. A map will be shared in the near future as plans come together.

Thank you for your continued interest in Yosemite Fire, happy March!
