A Giant Sequoia at Yosemite National Park in California on March 8, 2014A fire raging in California's Yosemite National Park advanced Wednesday, threatening a grove of famous giant sequoia trees. The blaze, which began on Saturday, has scorched some 3,545 acres (1,234 hectares) of the popular tourist spot and is about one-third contained, a spokeswoman for the Yosemite Fire Information call center told AFP. Some 830 firefighters and seven helicopters have been mobilized but the inferno is still moving toward the northwest, encroaching on Merced Grove -- home to some of the park's cherished giant sequoias. Last year, a gigantic blaze -- the third largest in Californian history -- ripped through a swath of Yosemite, burning 257,314 acres of the park that welcomes millions of visitors each year.
