The Stubblefield Fire is one of multiple fires burning in Yosemite National Park. These fires began as a result of thunderstorm and lightning activity that moved through the park beginning  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.

The Stubblefield Fire is 2 acres and is in monitor status.
 
The Stubblefield fire is located 2000 feet from mile marker 982 on the Pacific Crest Trail, near North Kerrick Canyon. It is visible from the Pacific Crest Trail but is no threat to the trail or hikers. Trail signs are posted.

Yosemite National Park is a fire-adapted ecosystem. The strategy for all fires is to provide for the safety of employees and the public and protect natural and cultural resources. Currently, there are no threats to infrastructure.
