FRESNO, Calif — A wildfire raging out of control has grown to nearly 200 square miles and spread into Yosemite National Park at the height of the summer season for one of California’s most popular tourist destinations.

More than 5,500 homes are threatened by the blaze, called the Rim Fire, and four were destroyed.
The fire, which was spreading into Yosemite National Park, was also threatening the San Francisco power grid.
“The wildfires that started in Tuolumne County have caused damage to electrical infrastructure serving the City and County of San Francisco, and now threaten damage to property, equipment, and resources of the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department,” Gov. Jerry Brown said in is
