Fire managers are planning controlled fires in the western portion of the park near Crane Flat early next week to reduce the amount of fuel for potential forest fires.
Officials are planning to burn in about 200 acres over two or three days. Smoke from the fires may be visible throughout the park but may be more evident in Foresta, El Portal and the Hodgdon Meadow area.
Controlled fires have been set in recent years at the park to cut down on fire dangers. The activity next week will be the first of its kind this year.
