Prescribed Fire Near Wawona Postponed Another Week

April 08, 2013 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information
Due to continued rain and snow, the Wawona Northwest Prescribed Fire in Yosemite National Park has been postponed for another week. It is now scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 16, but the date could change again if the forecasted drying trend is delayed.

Park fire crews will use the opportunity of the extended wet weather to burn more piles on park lands in the communities of Foresta, Wawona and El Portal. These piles of cut vegetation are leftover from previous mechanical fuel reduction projects.
 
For more information about the upcoming Wawona Northwest Prescribed Fire, contact Jennifer Chapman at 415/464-5133 or by email.
