Fire crews Battling Fire At Highway 108 and Yosemite Jct.

Sponsored by:

A vegetation fire has been reported at Highway 108 just east of the Yosemite Junction. This fire was first reported just before 1 p.m. today.

The fire is burning to the east O´Byrnes Ferry Road area in the same area of the Rosasco Fire last month.

Firefighters and air tankers are at the scene.

Motorists need to use caution in that area due to smoke and fire equipment in the area. CHP is shutting down the highway and diverting traffic on to Highway 49 around the fire.

Fire officials are now pulling resources off the Mineral fire in Calaveras County and sending them to this new fire.
