State fire officials report progress on two big fires burning in the Sierra.
The Rim fire near Yosemite is now 30 percent contained, having burned 197,737 acres. At that size, it is the sixth largest wildfire in state history, said Daniel Berlant of Cal Fire.
The daytime highs are expected to rise over the next few days, and for that reason, containment of the Rim fire has been pushed back to Sept. 20, Berlant said.
Farther south, the Fish Fire burning northeast of Springville in Tulare County is 25% contained, officials said Thursday morning.
The fire, which has burned 2,050 acres, is expected to continue producing smoke that will be visible from surrounding communities.
