Yosemite National Park Announces the Beginning of 2015 Fire Season

The 2015 Fire Season in Yosemite National Park began on Sunday, May 24, 2015. Fire season officially begins when seasonal firefighting equipment and personnel are in place, prepared and ready to respond. Additionally, grasses and other vegetation at the lower elevations have begun to dry out. This year, vegetation is drying out faster than average due to the low snowpack the park received over the last three winter seasons, making for fire danger above average for this time of year. http://www.nps.gov/yose/learn/news/fireseasonstarts2015.htm
