Pile Burning

November 27, 2012 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information
Pending the predicted rain and possible snow storms on Wednesday, November 28, fire managers will resume pile burning within the communities of El Portal and Foresta. The storms will provide an opportunity to burn piles built this year by Yosemite and CAL FIRE crews. The planned burning are a part of ongoing projects aimed at community fire protection and defensible space. If questions arise please email us or call 375-9574.

Low intensity fire in Yosemite

Natural fires in Yosemite are often no more than a single burning snag (standing dead tree) or a slow moving, low intensity fire that cleans underbrush from the forest floor. These fires prevent unwanted fires by removing accumulating forest debris that can fuel a larger fire in hot, dry conditions.
