Courtney fire in Oakhurst
A fire broke out in Oakhurst last week, burning upslope through over 30 homes located on the ridge between town and Bass Lake along Rd 426. Fortunately the fire ran into Bass Lake and extinguished itself. Fire fighters were able to hold the fire at under 700 acres. The fire’s movement was rapid and had it not been for Bass Lake the fire would have continued moving up into fisher research territory. The fire is out at this point and there has been no further threat to SNAMP teams and their equipment.
