The Rim Fire in Stanislaus National Forest Grows
The Center has a Wildfire Mitigation Program to prevent these disasters.
DC-10 and military type aircraft are being used to try to contain the fires. The fire continues to spread northwest burning past Butcher Knife Ridge and moving into Grapevine Creek; northeast up the Tuolumne River Drainage from the Gravel Range past Jones Point Lookout; and continues to spread southeast edge along Hwy 120 to the east.
