Rim Fire 19
A DC-10 makes a drop of fire retardant over the Rim Fire east of Ferretti Road in the Stanislaus National Forest Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013, in California. A wildfire outside Yosemite National Park nearly quadrupled in size Thursday, prompting officers to warn residents in a gated community to evacuate their homes and leading scores of tourists to leave the area during peak season.
