Meadow Fire burns Little Yosemite Valley and Clouds Rest

Perimeter map in the link below. Lightning caused fire smoldering for weeks. Was being allowed to burn naturally in federally designated wilderness. Not anymore. 100 hikers evacuated by helicopter.

Bummer, Yosemite is such a jewel, let's hope it doesn't turn into a raging inferno.

In some good news, according to the National Interagency Fire Center, 2014 has been a relatively calm fire season so far: 39,000 fires have burned 2.8 million acres, versus 10-year averages of 57,000 fires and 6.4 million acres. http://www.nifc.gov/fireInfo/nfn.htm
