The Soda Fire located in the Golden Trout Wilderness in Sequoia National Forest was likely dampened in the recent storm. The Ponderosa community near the fire reports snowfall of 9 inches and a snowpack of 8 inches as of Friday morning. Once the storm clears a recon flight will be done to see if there are any hot spots that were not extinguished by rain and snow. Future actions will be based on observations from this next recon flight. The fire grew to 1274 acres since it was discovered on January 13th. This will be the last update to inciweb unless the fire activity increases.
