UPDATE: June Lake Fire (final)


June Fire- 100% Contained

The June Fire final acreage is 65 acres and is 100% contained. Last night the fire continued to smolder in few areas of the fire. The fire area also received some light rain from thunderstorms.

This morning at 6:00am, fire command was transitioned back to the local Inyo National Forest firefighters who will be doing final mop-up and patrol of the fire over the next several days.

All roadways, June Lake and Gull Lake and campgrounds remain open to residents and visitors

Motorists should be aware that firefighters may be working in and around the roadways and are asked to please drive carefully.

The cause of the fire was determined to be human-caused.

5 Hand Crews, 5 Engines and 3 Water Tenders remain on the fire for the final mop-up and patrol efforts.

Mike Wakoski, Incident Commander of Southern California Incident Management Team 3 would again, like to “thank the residents of June Lake and Lee Vining for their support, patience and understanding as firefighters suppressed the June Lake Fire over the past several days.”
