All of the plants and trees in Yosemite are important, but the giant sequoias are incredibly important both for what they are and as symbols of the National Park System," park spokesman Scott Gediman said Saturday.

The Rim Fire has burned 203 square miles an area about the size of Chicago and was just 7 percent contained late Saturday night. It started in a remote canyon of the Stanislaus National Forest Aug. 17 and grew rapidly under dry conditions.

the good thing is:

sequoias need a fire to ripen their seeds, so they actually need a fire to reproduce and grow new ones :)

will take some time, but they´ll live there again happily !

yes! so no need to be sorry for these trees (i actually love them), but it is their way to grow a new generation.
only the humans won´t see them grow as big as their now burning tree-ancestors..
