Mariposa County fire containment up, progress slowed

The most considerable of which is the Detwiler Fire that has eaten up more than 45,000 acres in Mariposa County, just outside of the Yosemite National Park. According to Cal Fire, 45 structures have been destroyed and nearly 4,000 residents have been evacuated.

As of now, the fire remains at 7 percent containment, and continues to threaten almost 5,000 structures, while it has already destroyed 8.
