The type 3 team will transition to the type 4 organization today at 8:00 AM. Today will be the last daily update.
Fire crews will patrol the perimeter of the fire and conduct mop-up operations as needed. Smoldering stumps and heavy fuels well within the fire’s perimeter might generate smoke that could be visible for the next several days.
All roads remain open with the exception of Piute Mountain Rd which is located within the forest closure area.
Fire Restrictions: A reminder that the June 10, 2016 order issued by the Sequoia National Forest to restrict fire use is still in effect. It includes campfires or charcoal fires, being allowed only in designated campgrounds; smoking confined to enclosed vehicles or buildings, developed recreation sites and other designated sites; and a ban on fireworks, exploding targets, tracer rounds and other incendiary ammunition or devices in the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument at any time. This includes sparklers and so-called safe and sane fireworks. For a full list of fire restrictions and other alerts, visit www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/sequoia/alerts-notices for a list of areas.
Shelters: The shelter at Kernville Elementary will close on Thursday at noon. The Red Cross Safe and Well website is https://safeandwell.communityos.org/cms/index.php.
