Incident Photo for the Walkers Fire

Efforts to fully contain the 8,777-acre Walkers Fire have been completed. The fire area will be monitored by aircraft until winter weather arrives and extinguishes it.  
 
The Walkers Fire erupted in mid-August when lightning ignited vegetation in the Golden Trout Wilderness in Sequoia National Forest. It later spread into Sequoia National Park, approximately eight miles south of Mineral King. 

Forest and Park Service personnel worked side-by-side to coordinate fire suppression efforts across agency boundaries. They were successful at stopping fire spread toward communities outside the wilderness, preventing damage to cabins in the fires path, and accomplished their work in a safe manner.
 
Thank you to all of the personnel involved!
