Rim Fire

The Rim Fire, which began on August 17th near Jawbone Ridge, has now burned through a majority of the UTREP study area.  Firefighting efforts are ongoing; updates can be obtained from Inciweb and CalFire.  Several other resources are available online to track the Rim Fire, including ESRI's Rim Fire map and the KPCC fire tracker, and the Twitter feeds of Yosemite National Park Fire Management and CalFire.
