Road construction underway in Sequoia National Park

June 16, 2017 - 15:17
  The Generals Highway in Sequoia National Park first opened to traffic in 1926. The nearly century-old road is narrow and curvy, yet scenic and memorable.    A large-scale, multi-phased  modernization of the highway began in 1995 and has been continuing intermittently for the past 20 years to bring it up to Federal...

The Dinely Fire in retrospect

June 16, 2017 - 15:02
  When a wildland incident like the Wednesday, June 7, Dinely Fire breaks out, it’s an understatement to describe those initial moments as “all hell breaks loose.” It’s a frenetic scene.    The Dinely Fire’s most frantic moments all happened near the flashpoint at about 11:20 a.m. and continued with the first air...

  An excessive heat warning is in effect as of Saturday as triple-digit temperatures will dominate the forecast for the next week. If you think Saturday’s high of 101 is hot, wait until Wednesday when a record-breaking 108 is predicted. That’s also the first day of summer and it will be a scorcher. Nighttime lows will...

Dinely Fire scorches more than 300 acres

June 12, 2017 - 18:08
  The tinder-dry grass and brush around Three Rivers is certainly no stranger to fire. And because of the prolific precipitation this past winter and spring, the fuel load is especially heavy.   Since 2015, there have been several sizable brush fires on the North Fork and at least five fires near Cobble Knoll and Lake...
