TUOLUMNE CITY, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown is planning a visit to the site of a massive wildfire burning near Yosemite National Park.
Brown's office says he will join state and federal fire and emergency officials Monday at the Rim Fire.
The governor will get a briefing on the status of the fire and efforts to contain it and meet with first responders at a base camp.
The fire has grown to 234 square miles and is about 15 percent contained. It is burning within a mile of Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, which prompted Brown to declare a state of emergency for San Francisco over the weekend.
The city gets 85 percent of its water from the reservoir as well as power for municipal buildings and the international airport.
