Rim Fire Enters Yosemite National Park


By Paul Johnson

(CNN) - The US Forest service says a large wildfire in northern California is now burning inside Yosemite national park.
The rim fire has spread about eight miles into the park, in a remote wilderness area.
But smoke could be an issue for visitors, depending on where they are camping.
The immediate impact on the park is the continuation of a road closure that is resulting in a half-hour detour for visitors trying to enter from the west.
The rim fire has burned more than 100-thousand acres and is only two percent contained.
