Rim Fire Recovery Effort Launched

The Rim Fire is now 80 percent contained but still burning into Yosemite National Park. Cal Fire reports that the southern edge is approaching two groves of Giant Sequoia trees. But as more than 2700 fire fighters continue to battle the blaze, conservation activists are already planning recovery efforts in the wake of the largest fire in Sierra Nevada history. Tuesday, the Tuolumne River Trust announced a plan to take immediate action on reclaiming impacted forest and river areas that have been burned. Vic Bedoian has this report.
