357 Square Miles Burned in Rim Fire
Over 7,500 firefighters continue to battle seven major wildfires across California. Yesterday, CAL FIRE crews contained the 80 acre Centerville Fire in Butte County. A new fire ignited on Saturday on the Tule Indian Reservation burning 250 acres. While a majority of the large wildfires are burning on federal land, CAL FIRE and local fire departments continue to support the US Forest Service in their battle.
Great progress was made overnight on the Rim Fire burning near and in Yosemite National Park. The fire has burned 228,670 acres (357 square miles) and is now 60% contained. The Rim Fire remains the 4th largest wildfire in California's recorded history. See the Top 20 list. (PDF File)
Much of Northern California will experience cooler temperatures and even light rainfall in some areas. By mid-week, a drying trend is likely along with very gusty winds, which will increase the fire danger. In Southern California higher humidity and light winds will continue to cause the large fire threat to be low for the next several days.
While many Californians are enjoying outdoor Labor Day activities, CAL FIRE continues to urge all residents and visitors to take steps to prevent wildfires. For more steps to prevent a wildfire visit www.PreventWildfireCA.org. One Less Spark, means One Less Wildfire.
