California wildfire that’s bigger than Chicago threatens San Francisco’s water supply, Yosemite’s sequoias
A huge wildfire near Yosemite National Park in California continued to threaten San Francisco’s water supply Monday, while officials warned that the blaze was so hot that it could send sparks into new, untouched areas.

Officials reported some progress. Stanislaus National Forest spokesman Jerry Snyder said containment of the fire was at 15 per cent Monday morning, up from 7 per cent the previous night. He said crews were helped by cooler temperatures caused at least in part by the shadow cast by the large plume of smoke.

The fire continued to grow, however, and was 234 square miles in size — covering more ground than the city of Chicago. (Photos: AP Photo/The Modesto Bee, Elias Funez; HO/AFP/Getty Images)
