Incident Overview

The fire is located in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Suppression resources are at scene and engaged. Fire behavior continues to be active in the afternoon influenced by steep topography and afternoon up canyon winds. The northwest corner of the fire has burned into the 2005 Corral fire area. Fire crews are utilizing Minimum Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST). These tactics include utilizing natural barriers such as rock formations to stop, slow and direct fire spread.
