El Portal Prescribed Burn Notification
May 31, 2005
The National Park Service announces plans to conduct an El Portal
Prescribed Burn this week in Yosemite National Park, weather and air
quality conditions permitting.
This burn is being conducted in mostly grass with scattered brush near the
Old El Portal community and is approximately 64 acres. The objective of
this burn is critical community protection in the grasslands surrounding
Old El Portal. Fire managers hope to create a break in the grasses that
can fuel a destructive fire under hot, dry conditions.
A series of prescribed burns near El Portal have provided fuel breaks that
help firefighters make a safer stand against wildfire. Some of these burns
helped firefighters with community protection during the Woodlot Fire two
years ago.
This burn should be a one day operation and residents should not expect
smoke to continue beyond that day.
Smoke impacts to the roadway may occur, so please use caution when driving
in and around the burn area where smoke, fire vehicles, equipment, and
personnel may be present.
