by Seth conners
Fire crews are responding to the Wilson Fire. This new fire is north of Mono Lake, along the south of Highway 167 and three miles East of Highway 395.
The fire is 16 acres and is 5% contained at this time. Fire crews have constructed an initial fire line around the Wilson Fire. Crews will continue to strengthen the fire line today and will work towards a complete mop-up of the fire. Responders include U.S. Forest service, BLM, Mono City Fire Department, Lee Vining Fire Department, June Lake Fire Department, Mammoth Lakes Fire Department and CalFire.
Fire Managers advise travelers along Highway 167 to slow down near the fire area since crews will be working along the road corridor.
The cause of the fire is under investigation but it appears to be human made.
