Walker Fire update: Potential evacuation alert for Lee Vining is liftedAugust 20th, 2015 by Elin, Communications Coordinator
Great news from the agencies fighting the Walker Fire today—the CodeRed Emergency Alert for Lee Vining has been lifted, which means there will not be evacuations! This applies to everything north of the Double Eagle Resort & Spa in June Lake, including the Silver Lake and Grant Lake areas. However, campgrounds in lower Lee Vining Canyon will remain closed through the weekend.
We are immensely grateful to the firefighters and agency personnel who arrived in Lee Vining quickly after the fire started, jumped right on it, fought it tirelessly, and who continue to put out spot fires and work towards full containment. In light of yesterday’s news of the three firefighters who lost their lives in northern Washington, we hope more than ever that everyone stays safe.
