Rim Fire in Stanislaus National Forest

Up-date 6:59 P.M.

The Rim Fire is burning up a north facing slope to the south of the Clavey River towards Jawbone Ridge on the Groveland Ranger District of the Stanislaus National Forest. Firefighting aircraft are on scene with ground units en route to the very isolated and steep Clavey River Canyon area about one and a half miles east of the confluence with the Tuolumne River.

A type 2 incident management team has been requested along with other support units and equipment.

Today, the Tuolumne River is being used for a kayak regatta starting near Lumsden Campground. Forest Service employees are currently informing those recreating in the area of the fire and any potential risks. No evacuations have been ordered at this time.

The fire was spotted at 3:25 p.m. by a fire aircraft working on another smaller blaze off of Cottonwood Road in Tuolumne County.

Due to the remote and difficult terrian firefighters will not be able to gain access to the area from the ground until daylight tomorrow. Aircraft will continue to drop water and retardent until dusk this evening.
