Efforts were made over the weekend of March 22-23 to extinguish the Soda Fire burning in the Golden Trout Wilderness in Sequoia National Forest. Natural barriers and previously burned areas were utilized as fire line where possible. In areas with active fire it was burning with low intensity. A few areas were burned to consume light fuels to stop the fire from spreading any further near fire lines. Firefighters completed the fireline on Monday March 24th and the fire is now in patrol status. Smoke will still be visible in the area while interior islands of unburned surface and ground fuels smolder. Smoke should diminish over the next week and will be monitored as necessary.
