Un incendio cerca del Parque Nacional Yosemite se ha convertido en uno de los mayores de California este año y ha obligado a miles de residentes a evacuar sus viviendas.

Unos 2.000 bomberos están combatiendo las llamas, asistidos por avionetas y bulldozers y bajo condiciones difíciles como terrenos empinados y altas temperaturas, informó Cal Fire, el organismo regional antifuego.

“Hoy se pronostica un clima caliente y una humedad mínima de apenas entre 5% y 10%, lo que entorpecerá los esfuerzos de extinguir el fuego”, dice un parte oficial emitido el domingo.

Las llamas estallaron el viernes al sudoeste del parque cerca del poblado Midpines en el condado Mariposa. Arrasaron rápidamente entre una maleza seca, causada por la peor sequía en décadas.

Para el domingo el incendio había consumido más de 56 kilómetros cuadrados (22 millas cuadradas) con cero contención, dijo Cal Fire. La causa está siendo investigada.

Se emitieron órdenes de evacuación para unas 6.000 personas en la zona de Sierra Nevada.
