‘Nothing we can do’ about smoke, says Great Basin

September 25, 2010

Residents of the Eastern Sierra continue to cope with haze and smoke as the Sheep Fire in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park continues to burn.
Fire lines have been cut to stop the fire’s progress, but officials – reluctant to say exactly when the fire will be out and the skies will clear up – are hopeful that the three-month-old, 7,800-acre blaze will be out soon.
The fire was ignited by a lightning strike in early July, and has burned 3,089 in Kings Canyon National Park and 4,798 in the Sequoia National Forest.
