NcNally Wildfire - 2002

California's worst brush fires...

The McNally Fire was a wildfire in the Sequoia National Forest which burned 150,670 acres in July and August 2002.
The fire burned from July 21 to August 29, 2002 through the Sequoia and Inyo National Forest, as well as five percent of Giant Sequoia National Monument. It destroyed 14 building structures and cost an estimated $45.7 million to stop. The blaze was started due to the "careless use of fire" near the Roads End Resort in Kern Canyon, and spread east through the canyon and threatened the communities of Johnsondale and Ponderosa. It burned to within one mile of the Packsdale Grove of giant sequoia trees.
