Here we go, let's hope there will not be many of these this year.

Chimney Fire: PCT closed between Hwy 178 and Kennedy Meadows.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

I heard this might be mostly contained already. Don't see much from Ridgecrest currently (unlike yesterday).

But , seems to conflict with the %10 on report.

Hoping for the best!

Marina Fire

Here's a pic I took of the Marina Fire this morning when I was driving north on 395. I think I was one of the last people they let through before they shut down the Highway.

How/will this affect people trying to get into Tuolumne Meadows? I'm supposed to start the 30th. Hopefully this will get contained soon!

Cornelius-

No way of knowing. I would suggest you monitor the link that Maverick provided:
http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4809/

Unfortunately, it has now grown to 600 acres.

And I agree with you, I hope it is contained soon!
