Midpines, CA – As the containment and threat to structures have lessened for the French Fire burning in the Midpines area of Mariposa County this morning, CAL Fire has been dropping the number of resources on the scene.

“Resources are being made available to respond to other emergencies within the state today. There has been a decrease in equipment and fire personnel assigned to the French Fire,” according to CAL Fire.  “Firefighters continue to mop up the remaining interior heat and patrol. Suppression repair efforts are ongoing while damage inspections are now complete.”

  • Stockton Creek Reservoir and Trail (Mariposa Trails).
  • Road to MCHS baseball field and track

All aircraft have been released from the scene. Resources on scene include 576 personnel, 38 engines, 14 water tenders, 16 hand crews, 7 dozers, and 77 others.
