The Marina Fire continues to burn just north of Lee Vining in the steep slopes above Hwy 395 along Mono Lake. Fire crews, including air tankers and helicopters are fighting the fire and appear to be making good progress, though flames can still be seen on the southern edge of the burn. Residents of Lee Vining and Mono City received a reverse-911 call with a message that is it not necessary evacuate at this time, but to be prepared. Highway 395 is still officially closed, but Caltrans is escorting cars through the area when feasible. Businesses in Lee Vining are open.
