This report contains the results of a one week assessment of fire behavior, vegetation and fuel loading and consumption, and fire effects to vegetation and soil resources for Division Z on the Lion Wildfire. The Lion Fire started by lightning on July 8th, 2011 near Lion Meadow on the Sequoia National Forest in the Golden Trout Wilderness on the Western Divide Ranger District. Fire behavior, pre- and post-vegetation and fuel conditions were measured at 10 sites between Lion Meadow and Tamarack Creek between July 16 and 21st and August 7th , 2011. Fuel Moisture samples were gathered and measured in three fire management areas on Division Z. Multiple members of SQF’s Crew 20, Crew 2, and Engine 23 assisted and trained with FBAT on fire behavior equipment and fuels/vegetation inventory techniques.
