Fire in Yosemite

Just returned from a weekend in Yosemite and there was was an out of controlled fire burning near the HWY120 entrance. The fire started off as a controll burn then quickly out got out of control. Hummm. Starting a fire in August? Anyhow the smoke from the fire has filled up the valley. From this photo taken from the tunnel road you can see that Half Dome is almost obscured from the smoke. There were a number of helicopters dumping water on the fire. They would fly over the valley and pick up water from the Merced river below.
