Yosemite National Park experienced widespread precipitation and snow accumulation recently. The closure of the fire season occurs when there is a season ending precipitation event totaling two inches or more. Helicopter 551, Yosemite's helicopter that was contracted for the fire season, has now left the park. Seasonal fire personnel are completing their assignments and will soon be leaving the park as well. 

Consistent lower fire danger along with the recent precipitation has made residential pile burning permissible. Residential pile burning is important for reducing fire hazards and can only be conducted on permissible burn days. Property owners and residents must follow all burning guidelines.
