"We are seeing conditions that we would typically see in summer," Berlant said. "This is not the type of fire activity we should be seeing this time of year, but unfortunately because of how dry it is, this is the result."

"A fast-moving wildfire burning in steep and dry terrain in Mariposa County west of Yosemite National Park ballooned to 1,300 acres by Tuesday afternoon. At least two firefighters suffered minor injuries battling the wildfire, which has quickly consumed dry vegetation, destroyed one structure believed to be uninhabited and threatened 100 homes in the area of Hunters Valley Road, said Daniel Berlant, spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

'We are seeing conditions that we would typically see in summer," Berlant said. "This is not the type of fire activity we should be seeing this time of year, but unfortunately because of how dry it is, this is the result.'

Residents who received evacuation notices were told to leave because their access would be limited and they would not be allowed to return home if they decided to leave later, said sheriff's spokeswoman Kristie Mitchell."
