In an effort to stop current wildfires from spreading to Yosemite National Park, authorities are shutting down Yosemite Valley. An evacuation notice went out to current campers, and they were all supposed to be out by noon today.

According to CBS 13, State Route 41 is not closed, and will remain closed until Sunday. In addition to Yosemite Valley, Wawona is also closed through at least the weekend. However, Highway 120 both ways and the Tuolumne Meadows remain open.
