Moccasin Fire 5-10 Acres

Moccasin, CA — Firefighters continue to battle a grass fire along Highway 49 south of Moccasin.

It is 5-10 acres in size. CAL Fire reports that the forward spread has been stopped, but it is not yet contained. No homes or structures are currently at risk.

“Moccasin is a company town, and is entirely owned by the City and County of San Francisco. Homes are for employees who work for the city or state. There are no stores or even a gas station, the most striking feature of Moccasin is its massive water pipes. The water pipes bring water from the reservoir behind the O’Shaughnessy Dam within Yosemite National Park over and down Priest Grade and power the turbines at Moccasin.”
