  • Summit Fire (Wildfire)
     The Summit Fire was ignited by lightning and discovered on the afternoon of August 3, 2022. It is located at an elevation of approximately 9,000 feet in southern Sequoia National Park. The fire received significant moisture and showed little to no growth until August 23. It then grew moderately through the first week of September. The fire is located in an area with recent fire history, including the 2020 Castle Fire. The fire does not currently threaten any people or infrastructure. However, fire managers decided that the best way to manage risk in this situation is to suppress the fire using an indirect strategy. This indirect strategy protected firefighter safety by allowing them to engage the fire from favorable terrain, took advantage of existing burn scars and natural features, and limited impacts to land managed as wilderness. Beginning September 8, low intensity backfires were ignited along trail systems, the edges of green meadows, and fire scars to strengthen these areas...

    Friday, September 30, 2022, the Radford fire was declared 100% contained. Full control of the fire will not occur until all smokes have been mitigated or until weather conditions persist over the incident for an extended period.

The fire may continue to produce visible smoke at times and will continue to have an Incident Commander, fire equipment and personnel on scene daily to extinguish interior heat sources as they are discovered. This will continue for the foreseeable future. The move to full containment comes from a series of intelligence platforms that were gathered over the last few weeks. Night flying infrared imaging flew the Radford fire on the 27th and returned five heat signatures on the interior of the incident, none of which pose an immediate threat to containment lines.
