A turning point in the battle against the Rim fire
Today marks the eleventh day in the efforts to contain the rampaging Rim fire, which has so far torn through 161,000 acres near the northern end of Yosemite National Park, threatening everything from historical camp sites, to homes, the local environment and even San Francisco’s utilities.
But there’s a light at the end of the charred tunnel - the fire is now 20% contained, a sizable jump from just 7% two days ago.


"The fire will burn until the snow flies," said Tom Medema, a Yosemite National Park interpretive ranger. "But today, we finally had a chance to box it in."
