A wildfire burns next to Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, Calif. on Sept. 7. About 120 firefighters and 11 aircraft fought the blaze, which may have erupted from embers of a fire sparked by lightning several weeks ago, officials said. On Sunday, 100 people were evacuated from Little Yosemite Valley, and 80 to 85 were removed by helicopter from the top of 5,000-foot Half Dome.Michael Frye / AP
