Wildfires Threatening Yosemite National Park

One of the most breathtaking places on earth, Yosemite National Park, is in danger of devastating destruction from wildfires nearby the park. Mariposa Grove in Yosemite houses the largest and some of the oldest trees globally, the famous California sequoias, and is now temporarily closed as firefighters attempt to contain the fire before it begins to burn the famous trees. More than 500 sequoia trees that are thousands of years old are at risk, but no damage has been reported yet to these specific trees.
