(CBS News) After burning for nearly a week on the edges of California’s Yosemite National Park, a massive wildfire of nearly 200 square miles has now crossed into it, and firefighters have barely begun to contain it.
Flames of the so-called “Rim Fire” continue to shoot up toward the sky with the fire swallowing up everything in its path, reporter Anjali Hempbill of CBS Sacramento station KOVR-TV reported on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” from near the park.
“It’s scary,” said resident David Husid. “You just don’t want to see your house go up. We’ve got so many memories in the last year.”
