Rim fires continue to burn
The rim fire still burning out of control. California Air National Guard is helping firefighters battle the blaze near Yosemite National Park. They are dropping buckets of water from a helicopter above hot spots. The Guard has also launched an unmanned predator drone to give fire commanders a birds-eye view of the fire. The rim fire has charred more than 192,000 acres. So far the fire is only about 30 percent contained. The fire has cost the state more than $39 million to fight.
