Dust and smoke issues in the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District

Rough Fire crosses boundaries

Posted by admin on August 17, 2015

This image, looking west, shows how the Rough Fire has spread, in the last few days, from the Sierra National Forest across three boundaries: the middle fork of the Kings River, the Tombstone Ridge (between the Sierra National Forest and the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park) and the into the Sequoia National Forest on the southern flank.  This 3-dimensional view illustrates the severe ruggedness of the terrain and the complexities of the multi-agency firefighting challenge.  A persistent high pressure system will continue to cause smoke from this fire to impact the Owens Valley for several days.
