Incident: Angora Fire Wildfire
Several spot fires were located along the edge of the Coyote Lakes Trail (32E05) which posed a serious risk for travelers in the backcountry. Forest officials closed the Coyote Lakes Trail from its intersection with trail 32E02 east of Lion Meadows north to Coyote Peaks. The Deep Creek Trail (32E06) north of 32E02 east of Round Meadow was also closed to keep backpackers from walking into the fires path if it had spread towards the west.
