YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Residents in California's Foresta community near Yosemite National Park will be allowed to return home this afternoon, now that firefighters are making progress battling a more than 6-square-mile wildfire.

The blaze is now 58 percent contained, up from 34 percent contained early Thursday.

There are still worries that the wildfire could move west toward giant Sequoias about 2 miles away.
