Smoke Settles In Mother Lode

Motherlode residents are concerned about the smoke that has been hovering over the area from three prescribed burns in the Gin Flat area in the Yosemite National Park.

The fires have consumed about 2 thousand 49 acres as of Tuesday afternoon. Park Spokesman Scott Geddiman says fire crews are working to put the fires out and that the smoke should dissipate by the beginning of next week.
