Dog Rock Fire Update for October 9, 2014 at 4 pm

October 09, 2014 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information
Fire Investigation: Fire investigators have determined the cause of the Dog Rock Fire. Based on their investigation  it is believed that the fire was started by sparks generated by hot metal fragments from a vehicle. This could be the result of several things such as trailer safety chains dragging on the pavement, vehicle brake parts generating a spark or other sources.

Due to the extremely dry conditions in the park a single spark can start a wildland fire. Visitors can help reduce the  likelihood of igniting a wildfire by assuring their vehicles are maintained and operated safely.
