Incident Overview

The Ferguson Fire started July 13 on the Sierra National Forest and is managed under unified command between the United States Forest Service, California Interagency Incident Management Team 4, CALFIRE and the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office. Much of the fire is burning in steep, rugged terrain with little to no access roads. Mandatory and advisory evacuations are in place (outside of Yosemite National Park) in several areas but no homes have been damaged or destroyed. 

The Ferguson Fire is burning in very rough terrain with high firefighter exposure due to very hot conditions and limited access requiring heavy rotor wing support. Prior to the Rough Fire, this river canyon held the record for the largest fire on the Sierra NF which burned in 1924.

As of the morning of July 25 the fire is 38,522 acres with 25% containment. 3,434 personnel are currently engaged on the fire which includes 220 engines, 47 water tenders, 16 helicopters, 88 crews, and 59 dozers. There has been 1 fatality and 7 injuries to date.
