pile burn image

Fire crews will be burning piles of downed trees and brush today near Sherwin Creek Campground and June Lake, meaning smoke will be visible from both communities. The piles were created by fire fighters over the past few years in an attempt to thin the forest vegetation to better prevent catastrophic fires in the future. 

Burn will be near Sherwin Creek Campground, another near June Lake

Weather and air quality conditions permitting, fire crews plan to complete up to 50 acres of pile of downed logs and brush along the Sherwin Road near the Sherwin Creek Campground today, according to the Inyo National Forest in a news release today, Feb. 8.
