Marshes Fire Reaches 45% Containment, One Way Traffic Controls In Place On Hwy 49

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/29/2016 01:23 PM
Coulterville, CA...Road Closures: Hwy. 49 between Hwy. 120 and the Tuolumne-Mariposa County line remains closed. Hwy. 49 opened for single-lane traffic with a pilot car at 8:00 o’clock this morning. Marshes Flat Road open to residents only. The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department is maintaining the roadblock. Current Situation: Firefighters held the area burned on the Marshes fire at 1000 acres since yesterday. Containment is increasing as crews continue building and reinforcing many miles of fire line across difficult terrain and through dense brush. Much of the fire area has not burned in over thirty years, resulting in a major buildup of dead vegetation. Firefighters must also continuously watch for rattlesnakes and yellow jackets which survived the flames in underground burrows, and are now out and moving through the burn. Weather continues to be hot and dry, with higher winds expected over the area today.
