The Lukens Fire is one of several fires still burning in Yosemite National Park. These fires began as a result of thunderstorm and lightning activity that moved through the park in late June 2021. This fire is being managed based on its location, potential impacts, and other key factors. Many of the fires are burning in high elevation wilderness areas, ranging from 7,000 to 9,700 feet. It is currently 867 acres and is 100% contained.
Crews will be burning piles to mitigate remaining activity fuels from the suppression efforts along Tioga road in the footprint of the Lukens/County Line fires starting October 19 through October 20th, 2021. Travelers may see burning piles along Tioga Road from Mc Swain Summit to White Wolf Junction.
