Wildfire just miles from Yosemite grows to 22,892 acres

A wildfire burning near Yosemite National Park grew by nearly 2,000 acres on Friday as fire crews attempted to navigate the rough terrain, officials said.

The Ferguson Fire, which ignited a week ago, remained only 7 percent contained as it reached 22,892 acres, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

The inferno, scorching brush and timber, has challenged responders attempting to gain control of it due to steep, rugged and inaccessible terrain with little access to roads, officials said.

As of Thursday, the cost of battling the blaze was $8.
