This morning the Mono Fire is 70% contained at 1,200 acres. Highway 120 East reopened as well as South Tufa, Navy Beach, and Panum Crater. All regularly scheduled tours are occurring, including daily South Tufa Tours at 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 6:00 pm.

The fire is still burning at the north end of the Mono Craters with little potential for expansion, however Hwy 120 may close again if necessary. Stay clear of fire equipment and use caution – pilot cars may be needed for controlling traffic in some areas.
