Big Oak Flat Road reopens

Thursday, July 31, 2014 - 9 a.m. - Big Oak Flat Road, which connects Yosemite Valley to Highway 120 and the San Francisco Bay Area, has reopened to all traffic, Park officials report.

The latest report on the El Portal Fire has blaze containment at 34 percent, with 3,900 acres consumed.

Thick smoke on the fire's northwest flank has limited the ability of airtankers to attack the fire, the fire information team said. A total of 1,063 personnel are now assigned to the fire.

The Park community of Foresta remains under an evacuation advisory, the team added.
