Yosemite fire destroyed 28 homes

August 06, 2008|From the Associated Press

The fire burning outside Yosemite National Park destroyed 28 homes -- seven more than previously thought, state fire officials said Tuesday.

Officials said they revised the number after crews were able to more accurately survey the damage. The blaze, started July 25 by a target shooter, was 95% contained by Tuesday.

Meanwhile, a storm front forecast to move into California left fire officials worried that stronger winds and more lightning would spark new blazes.
