Lightning Fire In Yosemite

Sponsored by:

Yosemite, CA — A lightning fire has been spotted in Yosemite National Park in the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River.

Yosemite officials say the “Wildcat Fire” is burning in Red Fir, Jeffery Pine and brush. It is located on the north side of the Tuolumne River, between Pate Valley and Glen Aulin. The fire is located in one of the most remote, steep and rugged wilderness areas of the park.

The Grand Canyon trail is currently closed from Glen Aulin to Pate Valley, and further trail closures are being considered.

It is estimated at around 300 acres.
