Woods Creek Fire in Sequoia Kings

Posted by admin on July 17, 2012

The Woods Creek Fire in Sequoia – Kings Canyon National Park (SEKI) was reported on Sunday, July 15, 2012, at 30 acres.  The location coordinates are 36.87, -118.46.  By late Monday, it had grown to about 300 acres.  SEKI’s fire incident command is optimistic for holding the fire to about 350 acres.  The fire is being actively suppressed and is mostly contained by steep granite cliffs.  The western flank has been contained by fire crews.

As can be seen looking SW from just south of Big Pine at 1:30 PM today, smoke from the fire is drifting over the Owens Valley.  It appears to be mostly staying aloft.
