Walkers Fire (Wildfire)

The Walkers Fire was discovered Sunday, August 15, burning in the Golden Trout Wilderness on the Western Divide Ranger District in Sequoia National Forest. The fire is located approximately three miles east of Pecks Cabin, within the burned area of the 2015 Cabin Fire. It spread rather quickly across an estimated 100 acres through snags, heavy dead and down material, and thick brush. No structures are immediately threatened. Actions will be full suppression utilizing all available resources, recognizing life and property will take priority for resources throughout the state.  The Walkers Fire is burning in a very remote area, necessitating use of helicopters for crew shuttle and water drops. This, along with very hot conditions, is hampering firefighting efforts with the priority concern being firefighter safety.  At this time there are two hand crews, one helicopter and several overhead personnel assigned with more on order. Wilderness lands near the Walkers Fire remain closed…
