Rattlesnake Fire Update
As of May 12th at 10:00 am the Inyo National Forest is no longer in Unified Command with CALFIRE and the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office on the Rattlesnake fire. All evacuations have been lifted.
CALFIRE reported that the fire did not grow overnight. As cool temperatures set in, the fire behavior moderated allowing firefighters to get a more accurate acreage. This lead the fire to be reduced to 4.9 acres. Crews were able to make good progress overnight and listed the fire at 25% contained with more expected at the end of the day.
This will be the last update from the Inyo National Forest.
