Oak Fire

The Oak Fire began on July 22nd, 2022 and burned nearly 20,000 acres in Mariposa County, California near Yosemite National Park.

When the Oak Fire began it exhibited extreme fire behavior as it rapidly grew to 15,000 acres in just two days. Strong winds, low humidity, and high temperatures aided the quick growth.

A few days after the fire began, conditions became less favorable for fire growth and growth began to slow. More details about the Oak Fire can be found on the Incident Information System.
