Wildfire outside Yosemite grows and moves closer to park

A raging wildfire just outside of Yosemite National Park is evading the efforts of thousands of firefighters as it burns through dry brush and rugged terrain, growing daily and heading toward populated areas.

The Ferguson Fire has been burning — and growing — in and around the Merced River Canyon since July 13. The fire grew to 30,493 acres by Sunday and moved within about 2 miles of the northwestern portion of the national park, fire officials said. Containment continued to be listed at 6 percent.
