Yosemite Fire Update #2 - July 22, 2016

Lakes Fire

  

LAKES – 37 35.6 x 119 33.6 approximate 8000 feet elevation

   Mariposa County near the Madera County border

 

The Lakes Fire in the Chilnualna Lakes area, between Turner Meadow and Buena Vista Peak, is a lightning caused fire that is being managed for multiple objectives.  This week, Yosemite Crew 1 personnel hiked into the fire and reported it to be 15.3 acres with the most activity on the northeast and southwest edges of the fire, due to the slope and wind alignment.  Growth potential is estimated to be high. 

 

The Lakes Fire was initially confirmed on July 7, 2016 when Crew 1 personnel responded to reports of smoke in the area.  The fire is believed to be a lightning hold over from June 12, 2016.  There are no immediate threats to the area or the hiking trail.

Lakes Fire

LAKES – 37 35.621 x 119 33.571 approximate 8000 feet elevation, Mariposa County near the Madera County border

After receiving reports of smoke in the Chilnualna Lakes area, between Turner Meadow and Buena Vista Peak, fire personnel from Yosemite Crew-1 hiked into the area on June 7, 2016.  A confirmed lightning strike tree was observed, which resulted in a 3.2 acre surface fire.  The fire was described as smoldering and creeping in brush, timber and duff, with moderate spread potential.  The fire is approximately 0.20 miles off the Chilnualna Lakes Trail, but there are no immediate threats to the area, or the hiking trail.  At this time, the fire will be in a monitor status and Crew-1 has hiked out of the area. 

Lightning fires are a natural occurrence and play a vital role in shaping this fire dependent ecosystem.  Each year, lightning strikes may result in multiple fires in Yosemite’s wilderness.  By managing these fires for resource benefit, as opposed to suppressing them, we can ensure a healthier, more diverse and natural forest where future fires will burn with less intensity.
