Fire Growth Potential
Updated: 11 hours, 26 mins ago — 8/14/18: The Georges Fire has been inactive for several weeks and is 95% contained. The Georges Fire is a lightning-caused fire that started on July 8 north of Lone Pine, west of Manzanar National Historic Site, and south of Bairs Creek. The fire was actively suppressed along the Owens Valley to protect life and property such as Whitney Portal, Lone Pine, and Manzanar National Historic Site. Due to fire activity, the Whitney Portal area was evacuated and closed for two days (in early July). No structures were destroyed. Monsoonal moisture helped slowed the fire’s growth.While these areas in the valley floor are now safely contained, the western fireline of the Georges Fire is in steep, inaccessible terrain as the fire burned into the mountains of the Eastern Sierra. Firefighters cannot access this flank of the fire. As such, firefighters cannot ascertain containment in this area. However, there has been no notable activity or smoke report for the fire since 7/18/18.
