Good news for the residents of Oakhurst.
Highway 41 has been closed at Oakhurst and large areas are subject to evacuation as a wildfire burns just outside of town.
Here’s some info from the NPS regarding the status of all the fires burning within the park.
The report I posted a few minutes ago was from yesterday morning. Here’s the one I found in my email from last night. They made significant progress on the fire yesterday, from 19% contained to 34%. Awesome!
The fire in Foresta is 19% contained and over 3,000 acres. Take a look at the map.
Here’s the latests on the fire and a map so you can get an idea of the area.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all our family and friends in El Portal and the fire crews working this fire.
