Junction Fire (Madera County) Started 8/18/2014, updated 8/19/2014

Extreme fire conditions related to the current drought situation have hampered containment. Winds and spot fire
conditions of ¼ to ½ mile ahead of the main fire created many challenges. Firefighters are hopeful that lower
temperatures, a rise in humidity and less wind will provide them with the ability to establish containment lines, utilizing
hand crews and dozers. Firefighter from throughout the central valley and the state are being deployed to defend homes in
the area. The Red Cross is assisting with all evacuation shelters.

With summer weather and extreme drought conditions, we are asking everyone to continue to use caution, “one less spark
– one less wildfire”. For more information on how to prepare for wildfires, go to www.readyforwildfire.org.
