Firefighters battling the Rim Fire in and around the Yosemite National Park are making steady progress, hitting 80 percent containment Wednesday morning.
Crews credit a change in conditions, namely overnight humidity, with the slow of fire growth. In the early days of the Rim Fire, flames fueled by wind and dry brush spread quickly through the Stanislaus National Forest.
The National Forest Service says more than 4,100 firefighters are at the scene. The fire has burned 237,341 acres, or 370 square-miles.
Eleven homes have burned since the fire started Aug. 17. Firefighters say the blaze should be fully contained by Sept. 20.
