The Dog Fire was started by lightning on May 11, 2021. This is a full suppression fire. It is located in a remote and steep section of wilderness area in the park where access and terrain are challenging to firefighters working on the ground. Because of this, firefighters are utilizing natural and man-made barriers to maintain the fire within the park's upper elevations.
As of June 2 the fire is 1,959 acres in size and is 40% contained.
On May 31 the fire was placed in a patrol and monitor status due to minimal fire activity and minimal chance of continued fire growth. On June 2, little or no sources of smoke were observed. The majority of resources demobilized on June 3. A Type 6 Engine with a Type 4 Incident Commander remained assigned to the fire.
There is an area closure and fire restrictions in effect in the park. The area closure was revised effective June 1.
