California firefighters are close to containing a wildfire that's destroyed more than 20 homes near Yosemite National Park. The fire had forced the evacuation of 350 other houses and spread a smoky haze over the national park. It was sparked by a target shooter last week. But by this morning, the blaze was about 80 percent contained. Evacuation orders have been lifted. In north-central Washington state, a fire has blackened more than 3 square miles of timber and rangeland. An official says the fire subsided overnight as the wind dropped. An evacuation order for eight homes remains in effect.
