YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK–Smoke will be visible from various locations in Yosemite National Park (YNP) this week, February 6th through the 10th, as YNP Fire and Aviation crews resume pile burning in several locations.
Areas to be included are near the Clinic in Yosemite Valley as well as the Ahwahnee Hotel/Sugar Pine Bridge area. Fire managers also hope to burn piles in the Foresta community as well as south of the Wawona community.
There are no anticipated closures associated with this pile burning.
Yosemite air quality may be affected by fires elsewhere in the region or by prescribed fire in Yosemite; hazy or smoky conditions are always possible. Current YNP conditions can be found here.
The public information map will be updated next week, as well as Yosemite Fire and Aviation social media accounts.
