Yosemite Meadows Fire Almost 5,000 Acres

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/11/2014 02:12 PM
Yosemite, CA...Firefighter and public safety remains the highest priority. Fire crews are being sensitive to environmental and cultural resources in and around the fire area.

Air resources, including nine helicopters are being utilized along the fire-line to slow the forward progress of the fire and to cool down hot spots. Due to the potential fire growth and extensive amount of work which remains, a high commitment of resources will be required....
