Yosemite Fires (Update #8)

September 06, 2012 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information

Cascade: (37 46.173 x 119 40.519; 7800'El., Mariposa Co., 6.15.12)  The fire continues to show low to moderate fire activity.  After recent ground observations, the fire is at 1113 acres. Approximately 30 to 40 percent of the perimeter is active on the west flank. Most of the fire is creeping and smoldering in light brush and compact needle cast from the red fir forest.  The fire will continue to be monitored.  Air quality has remained in the good range.  The park's webcam, located at Crane Flat Helibase, captures fire images, which can be viewed at:  http://ssgic.cr.usgs.gov/dashboards/WebCam.htm.

There are no other new fires in Yosemite.

Firefighter and public safety are always the primary importance and consideration with all fires.
