The June Fire started at the base of June Mountain on the afternoon of September 16. Fire behavior includes torching, spotting, and active runs.
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. 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. The Meadow Fire has been converted to a smaller Type 3 organization and will be monitored by wilderness fire modules.
Containment of the Meadow Fire continues to grow allowing some areas to be re-opened. However, the fire is still active and fire crews are working in the area. In order to maintain the safety of park visitors and allow fire management operations to continue unimpeded, the Superintendent of Yosemite National Park is designating a portion of Yosemite Wilderness as closed. This update reflects the reopening of Little Yosemite Valley Campground.
