The Blue Jay Fire was ignited by lightning July 24. The fire started approximately 4 miles south of White Wolf campground, and is located primarily in Wilderness on the south side of Tioga Road at 9,000 feet in elevation. Lightning caused wildfires are a natural part of the Yosemite National Park Wilderness.
Minimal smoke may be visible from Tioga Road, Glacier Point, and high-country vistas. Park managers are working with the local Air Quality Districts and will be monitoring smoke impacts to the park and local communities.
