A forest fire occurred near Yosemite National Park in California on August 17, 2013.
The burnt area spread over widely because the drought had protracted and continued the extreme arid condition. Furthermore it was difficult to approach this area by the fireman.
In these reasons, the fire spread widely and it was the 4th widest burnt area in California on record.
