Fire

The relentless Ferguson Fire in and around Yosemite National Park in California is now the largest in Sierra National Forest history.  The Forest Service says the blaze grew by about 28-hundred acres on its 25th day for a total of just over 94-thousand acres destroyed and containment increased by five-percent to 43-percent.  The fire has killed two people, injured another eleven and destroyed ten structures since it began July 13th.  The Forest Service says the overall fire behavior has moderated thanks to reduced wind speed, but it calls the fire activity inside Yosemite "dynamic."
