Yosemite Fire Update - September 17, 2014

September 17, 2014 Posted by: Yosemite Fire Information
A new fire, Double Rock, was found September 16. It is approximately 7 miles east of White Wolf and near the source of Morrison Creek. This is a high elevation fire at approximately 8,750', smoldering in brush, down logs and snags and is estimated to be one acre in size. 

The Lembert and Cathedral fires in the Tuolumne Meadows area have become more active due to windy conditions at ridge tops and near the Sierra Nevada crest. Consequently, smoke has become more visible. 

The Meadow Fire has been converted to a smaller Type 3 organization and will be monitored by wilderness fire modules.
