Ferguson (Yosemite Area) Fire Update 8/5/18

Sierra News Online reported at 7:23 am Sunday Aug. 5

The Ferguson Fire grew by nearly 8,000 acres overnight and is now estimated at 89,633 acres with containment remaining at 35 percent.

There has been no update from park officials on the reopening of Yosemite previously scheduled for today at 4 p.m. We expect to hear from them soon that portions of the park currently closed will remain so, and will update when that happens.

Low humidity recovery kept fire behavior fairly active throughout the night.
