Park fire is contained

Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014 - 10:35 a.m. - Yosemite's Dog Rock Fire was fully contained this morning, a Park fire report said. The fire had consumed a total of 311 acres, spokesman Mike Wilson said.

Also, a preliminary report has cleared CAL FIRE's airtanker fleet for operations following the Oct. 7 loss of one S-2T aircraft and its pilot on the incident. 

Firefighters will be patrolling the Highway 140 to check for "rolling material."

"Some smoke from the interior of the fire may still be visible," today's report said.
