Above: screenshot from the video.

This is a flyover virtual tour of the Ferguson Fire burning in and near Yosemite National Park in California. The red line was the perimeter at 12:15 a.m. PDT August 5, 2018. The red shaded areas were intense heat at that time. The blue line is the location of the huge Rim Fire of 2013. The green line is the boundary between Yosemite National Park and U.S. Forest Service managed land. Recorded by August 5, 2018.

The fire has burned over 89,000 acres in Yosemite National Park, Sierra National Forest, and Stanislaus National Forest. On the north edge it has burned into the footprint of the Rim Fire that blackened 257,000 acres in 2013.

  1. Thanks for today’s update. Do you have access to the fire history along the Badger Pass Ski Area To Glacier Point? I know the area south of BP AND between the 41/Badger Pass road south has seen a number of fires.
