A closure of Highway 120 (Big Oak Flat Road) inside Yosemite National Park was lifted around 11 a.m. Friday after an RV burst into flame the previous afternoon.
The highway was closed from Crane Flat to Highway 140 (El Portal Road) around 3:30 p.m. Thursday when the RV, with no one inside, caught fire near the junction with Foresta and spread into surrounding vegetation.
Yosemite spokeswoman Jamie Richards said the fire grew to 15 acres by Friday afternoon, with no expected additional growth. She said it was being called the Rattlesnake Fire.
Those driving along Highway 120 are asked to use caution and remain vigilant, as firefighters are still working on the blaze.
Highway 41 remains closed from Cedar Valley north of Oakhurst to the line between Madera and Mariposa counties due to the Railroad Fire. Officials said they plan on reopening the highway at 5 p.m. Saturday.
