Wildfire Spreads into Yosemite Park

Rim Fire has burned more than 100,000 acres


A large wildfire in California is now burning inside Yosemite National Park, the U.S. Forest Service said Friday.

The Rim Fire has burned 105,620 acres, Forest Service spokesman Bjorn Fredrickson said. The fire is only 2% contained.

The part of the fire burning inside Yosemite is a remote wilderness area, but smoke could be an issue for visitors, depending on where they are camping, he said.
