Forbidden Fire Update

June 11, 2013 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information
This lightning caused fire is approximately 32 acres. A single tree was struck by lightning on May 21, 2013. The fire is west of the Eagle Peak Meadow and Creek, a tributary of Yosemite Creek, and is north of Eagle Peak, on the north rim of Yosemite Valley. It is smoldering through surface fuels and duff in a red fir forest. Parts of the fire have been observed with 6-12 inch flame lengths, and there have been some torching of trees.

Smoke is visible from various locations in the park, including Tioga Rd, Sentinel Dome and Glacier Point. Fire managers are working with Mariposa County Air Pollution Control District concerning air quality impacts to nearby smoke sensitive areas. 

Fire crews utilized natural barriers to check the fire spread to the south, and will continue to monitor the fire for growth, direction of spread, fire behavior and smoke production. 

The Forbidden Fire meets the park's fire management objectives of firefighter and the public safety, as the fire presents few risks to values. The fire poses no threat to park service buildings, roads or infrastructure. When appropriate, fire crews will utilize pack stock for logistical support on this fire in an effort to preserve wilderness character.

The fire was named for the Forbidden Wall along the Yosemite Falls trail.
