Dramatic images are emerging on social media -- some taken by local residents -- showing the size and destructive power of a forest fire that has been burning for days n and around Yosemite National Park.

The fire has burned more than 125,000 acres, destroyed nine structures and is threatening the power supply of San Francisco. Officials say 4,500 additional structures remain in its path. Residents say they were stunned by the fire's power.

The photo above shows the towering smoke near the town of Groveland, which is in the fire's path.

Wall of smoke triggers emergency warnings in Reno and Carson City


The giant wildfire is still burning at the edge of Yosemite National Park and has unleashed a smoky haze that has worsened air quality more than 100 miles away in Nevada.

The plume from the Rim Fire in California triggered emergency warnings in the Reno and Carson City area.

Schoolchildren were kept inside for the second time in a week, people went to hospitals complaining of eye and throat irritation and officials urged people to avoid all physical activity outdoors.
