A fast-moving wildfire in Yosemite National Park was threatening to spiral out of control early Tuesday.
While firefighters made progress battling a larger wildfire in northern California’s vineyard country, the El Portal wildfire burning across four square miles of Yosemite and the neighboring Stanislaus National Forest was at just 5% containment late Monday.
Three campsites and several roads were closed and around 100 homes were at risk, despite what the National Park Service said was “incredible firefighting work.”
