Rim Fire Continues To Burn Near Yosemite National Park
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, CA - AUGUST 24: Smoke from the Rim Fire lingers over the O'Shaughnessy Dam at Hetch Hetchy Reservoir on August 24, 2013 in Yosemite National Park, California. The Rim Fire continues to burn out of control and threatens 4,500 homes outside of Yosemite National Park. Over 2,000 firefighters are battling the blaze that has entered a section of Yosemite National Park and has prompted California Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for San Francisco due to damage to some of the lines and stations that move power to San Francisco. The Hetch Hetchy reservoir also had to take two of its three hydroelectric power stations out of service. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
