Many of the fires the Inyo National Forest fire crews are responding to are human-caused fires. Please remember, do your part to prevent your wildfires. Maintain your vehicles, be sure you are towing your boat or trailer safely, and follow the forest’s fire restrictions. Do your part: one less spark, one less wildfire.
