    Yosemite Fire


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Just outside Yosemite National Park in El Portal, California, wildfires burned in the steep terrain, MikeFors said. He took these photos Sunday while visiting the area. He says the blistering heat and dry conditions are not helping the situation either. He says the fire is in its third day of burning, and is being contained slowly. So far, only 5 percent is contained, and the area of Foresta has been evacuated.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    A 2,600 acre wildfire threatens the El Portal area of Yosemite National Park. Water dropping helicopters and other aircraft work to slow the fires progress and help to contain the fire that is only 5 % contained.
