California wildifre continues to grow

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (NBC News) As a massive wildfire continues to grow in Yosemite National Park, so does the army of teams pouring into the northern California mountains to battle the blaze.

Air strikes from above are dousing the flames, while hot shots crews along the leading edge of the fire and heavy equipment are digging out fire lines, moving out dried trees and other potential fuel for the fire.

Eleven homes have been lost and another 4,500 are in jeopardy right now.
