We've been following this fire on our scanner here at home since it was discovered around 4:15 this afternoon in the June Mountain parking lot. Lots of crews already on it including an air tanker and helicopter. We are experiencing very high winds today so this does not bode well.
Update: Fire is now approximately 10 acres. Evacuation of everyone down canyon including campgrounds. Evac center being set up at the June Lake Community Center. The fire has burned some power lines so there is no land line or cell service in their community. Hard closures on Hwy 158 at Oh Ridge and Grant Lake.
Be safe up there June Lake neighbors and firefighters on scene.https://www.facebook.com/inyonf
