- Wildfire near Yosemite grows to more than 70,000 acres
By Evan Sernoffsky and Kurtis Alexander - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
MARIPOSA — A wildfire ripping through California’s Gold Country grew by more than 24,000 acres overnight as thousands of evacuees remained in emergency shelters uncertain if their homes were destroyed. More than 3,000 firefighters battling the Detwiler Fire just west of Yosemite National Park have only reached 10 percent containment on the blaze that started Sunday and spread to 70,096 acres by Thursday morning. The fire has destroyed at least 45 structures, many of them homes, and is threatening more than 1,500 residences, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Mariposa, the southernmost town in the Gold Country region, a collection of old saloons and bygone buildings that now peddle mostly ice cream and local wine to tourists, stood nearly empty Thursday as thousands of locals were forced to flee. Flames from the fast-moving fire were tearing across a grassy ridgeline just above the 1850s-era community, burning homes as it charred thousands of acres of foothills to the north and leaving residents and visitors anxious about the fate of historical town. The past few weeks have brought hot, dry weather to the Sierra, often in the triple digits, which has combined with erratic winds in recent days to fuel the Detwiler Fire. While a wet winter left hills and valleys much moister than normal this year, once they dried out, a bumper crop of grass and brush emerged as easy prey for fire, particularly at lower, hotter spots like Mariposa. Tens of millions of trees have died because of the recent drought and a bark beetle infestation in the central and southern Sierra, a die-off that authorities fear only intensifies fire.
- Yosemite’s south entrance closed because of wildfire
By Kurtis Alexander - Wednesday Aug 30, 2017
Yosemite National Park’s southern entrance was shut down Wednesday because of a fast-moving wildfire that burned seven structures and prompted authorities to close Highway 41 just outside the park. The Railroad Fire, which ignited Tuesday afternoon north of Oakhurst, had charred 1,200 acres of foothills in and around the Sierra National Forest as of Wednesday evening, according to the U.S. Forest Service. High temperatures and strong winds were expected to fuel further growth, officials said. The cause of the fire was under investigation. Mandatory evacuations were in place for the small community of Sugar Pine, close to the fire’s origin, as well as nearby Sugar Pine Camp and Fish Camp.

- Fire destroys California homes as crews battle hot weather
Saturday Jul 8, 2017
(AP) — A fast-moving wildfire in the Sierra Nevada foothills destroyed 10 structures, including homes, and led to several minor injuries, fire officials said Saturday as blazes threatened homes around California during a heat wave.After five years of severe drought, California got a big break with record rainfall and snowpack in parts of the state this year that has delayed the start of fire season in some places, but has also led to explosive vegetation growth that could fuel future fires.Five residents and one firefighter suffered minor injuries in the Butte County fire, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection reported, and evacuation orders were in place in the rural area about 60 miles north of Sacramento.
