Current Situation
Pockets of unburned fuel within the perimeter will continue to hold heat. Carlon Falls Trailhead, Tuolumne Grove, the Crane Flat Lookout and wilderness areas remain closed. Facilities and areas along the Tioga Rd west of Lukens Lake Trailhead are closed, including White Wolf and Yosemite Creek Campgrounds. Evergreen Road is only open to Evergreen Lodge. Old Yosemite Road, Harden, and the Cherry Creek Road remain closed. A forest closure order is in effect for locations within and proximate to the fire area. Logging trucks will be operating on state highways 108 and 120, and motorists are advised to use caution. Resources continue to monitor the fire as it slowly spreads northeast further into the Yosemite Wilderness and Emigrant Wilderness. As a result of the continued spread of fire into the wilderness areas, the expected containment date has been extended. Fire Suppression Repair completed to date: 121 miles of dozer line; 36 miles of handline; chipping on 64 miles of road.
