Crews Beat Back Blaze in California's Yosemite Park

Fire crews have brought containment up to 19 percent for a wildfire burning in California's Yosemite National Park on Tuesday, officials said. Crews made progress on the south side of the fire near the community of El Portal, where evacuation orders have been lifted. The fire grew from about 2,600 acres to 3,060 overnight and was still threatening several homes in Foresta, where many of the park service employees live.
