Snow Slows 1,715 Acre Creek Fire

Sponsored by:

Tuolumne County, CA — Five firefighters remain assigned to the lightning caused Creek Fire that ignited in early September in the Stanislaus National Forest.

The fire is 1,715 acres and is considered 95-percent contained. The fire was notably slowed due to a high country snowstorm this past weekend. More precipitation is in the forecast for later this week, which will further extinguish the fire. The incident is situated in the Clear Lake/Bourland Mountain area on the Mi-Wok Ranger District. The nearby Rock Creek Trail remains closed. It is burning near the Mountain Complex Fire footprint of 2003.
