YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK IS SLATED TO REMAIN CLOSED INDEFINITELY DUE TO INCREASED FIRE ACTIVITY

Fresno-Visalia, CA (WFSN) – Yosemite National Park is closed indefinitely due to the Ferguson wildfire.

The release says all of the roads used to access Yosemite valley have been impacted by the blaze.

Trees in the area that could fall without warning also pose hazardous conditions, according to the statement.

As of Sunday evening, the Ferguson fire has burned more than 89,000 acres and is 38% contained.
