(Reuters) – The 2,000 people of a small California city in the foothills flanking Yosemite Countrywide Park were ordered to evacuate on Tuesday as crews battled an out-of-command wildfire that has previously destroyed eight structures. Residents of tiny Mariposa, in the Sierra Nevada mountains southwest of Yosemite in central California, were ordered to flee following flames from the so-identified as Detwiler Hearth jumped around Highway 140 and marched toward the neighborhood, threatening one,500 structures. “Hearth action ongoing to expand in the course of the evening owing to enough fuel, and steep terrain,” the California Section of Forestry and Hearth Protection (Cal Hearth) stated on its tracking web site.
