Wawona area of Yosemite NP still threatened by wildfire, though pace of spread has slowed

Humidity has helped slow the spread of the South Fork Fire in Yosemite National Park, though residents of the Wawona community remained under a voluntary evacuation order.

Concerns that the flames might reach Wawona and its historic hotel, as well as the Merced Grove of sequoias, had crews working to put out the forest fire. As of Thursday morning the fire was roughly three-quarters of a mile east of the Swinging Bridge in Wawona.
