The Sacata Fire started on the Sierra National Forest on the afternoon of October 11th. After a few hours, the fire staff saw a rapid rate of spread at which time an incident team was ordered, because of the amount of values at risk. Favorable wet and cooler weather over the past weekend, saw fire crews make good progress in suppressing the fire. After a week the fire was 97% contained, and suppression repair began in the burn area. The fire is now 100% contained. Today, the Forest gave management to a type 4 organization relieving the type 3 team.

Although this fire started late in the season, it is important to remember that fires can happen at any time and will spread if the right conditions exist. Members of the public should keep in mind that the forest is still under fire restrictions. Contact the Bass Lake or High Sierra Ranger Districts for more information.
