Staff Writer

In one more sign that the Walker Fire is coming under control, the Code Red Emergency Alert notice issued for Lee Vining and everything north of Double Eagle in June Lake (including Silver Lake and Grant Lake areas) for possible evacuation orders after the Walker Fire looked like it could pose a threat to the communities earlier this week has been lifted.
Campgrounds in the Lower Lee Vining Canyon will remain closed through the weekend. These areas include Lower Lee Vining, Moraine, Boulder, Aspen Grove and Big Bend campgrounds.
