Listed by Inciweb, this fire is in the Golden Trout Wilderness area near Jordan Hot Springs. It’s 485 acres and it’s 12 percent contained as of June 13. It’s 26 miles southwest of Lone Pine, California. It was caused by lightning

Inciweb wrote on June 13: “While the fire continued to grow the reported fire acreage was reduced due to improved mapping of the fire edge. The fire remains south of Nine Mile Creek and north of Manzanita Knob. Manzanita Knob, at 9,121 feet of elevation, is a prominent peak on a ridge that forms the boundary between the Inyo and Sequoia National Forests. Close coordination between the Forests continues in mutual support of the Jordan Fire objectives. The fire is approximately 26 miles southwest of Lone Pine, California in the Golden Trout Wilderness. Firefighters work to minimize the impacts of line construction and camping to maintain the wilderness character of the land.”

A heat-related illness was caused by the fire yesterday. Inciweb reported on June 13: “Inyo Forest Supervisor Tammy Randall-Parker said, ‘To ensure the public can continue to safely enjoy the Golden Trout Wilderness, I am closing a limited number of trails that lead into the Jordan Fire area. The Pacific Crest Trail remains open and will not be affected by this decision.’”

Here’s a map of trail closures:
