The Rim Fire is continuing to burn in the Yosemite and Emigrant Wilderness and in the Stanislaus National Forest. Here’s the latest on what’s open and what’s closed and some advisories if you’re traveling in the area.

I know I’m a little late but in case you missed it, the Tioga Road and Highway 120 through Yosemite are open to traffic once again.

To date the fire has cost an estimated $102 million, destroyed 11 residences, 3 businesses, 97 outbuildings and continues to threaten over 1200 structures.
