Sequoia National Forest Contained at 25 Percent

A wildfire in the Sequoia National Forest (CA) has been fueled by strong winds and grown to 1,700 acres, reports the Associated Press (http://bit.ly/KbhgqX).

Officials report that the fire is 25 percent contained on Monday but that strong winds are expected that would make the fire difficult to control.

More than 500 firefighters are battling the fire with help from air tankers.
