Unicorn Fire Update #1

August 01, 2018 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information

Unicorn Fire

Size: 1/4 acre                                                            
Cause: Lightning                                                                 
Fuels: Hemlock
Elevation: 9,500 Feet                                   

The Unicorn Fire is a lightning caused wildfire burning in Yosemite National Park's Wilderness.  It is burning at 9,500 feet in elevation with a vegetation component of high elevation mixed conifer, predominantly hemlock.  The fire is has a low spread potential, which means it is not expected to have significant growth. Fire crews from Yosemite National Park will continue monitoring this fire. 

Fire managers work to restore healthy forests and reduce the threat of extensive, severe fire by allowing some lightning-ignited wildfires to burn under moderate conditions.

Smoke may be visible from high elevations near Tuolumne Meadows. There are no trail closures associated with this fire.

Updates will be created when there are significant changes.
