Firefighters continue to fight the Dog Rock Fire burning in Yosemite National Park on Wednesday.
The 250-acre wildfire started around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday at Dog Rock on El Portal Road between the park boundary and the Arch Rock Entrance Station. There is no estimate on the fire's containment.
Even though the fire grew 100 acres since Tuesday night, firefighters were able to keep the growth at a minimal, the National Park Service said. Favorable weather conditions helped crews battle the blaze.
The evacuation of about 60 homes from the Foresta community remains in effect. Highway 140 into the park remains closed, but the park and other roads into it are open to the public.
