South Sierra fire update

Fire_from_haiwee_cyn_rd_2 The Clover Fire in the southern Sierra, which caused the U.S. Forest Service to clear Pacific Crest Trail hikers from the Kennedy Meadows area last weekend, has grown considerably since Sunday. The National Interagency Fire Center is now saying the flames encompass 13,049 acres with only 10% contained — and residences are now threatened. The Sequoia National Forest's website still only has updates as of Sunday. NIFC is reporting that 32 large wildfires are burning in California.

AccuWeather.com reports that an onshore flow is bringing cooler air into coastal areas and some valleys in Southern California, so hopefully that will help firefighters contain the blazes.
