The Carr Fire had grown into the 6th most destructive fire in state history surpassing the 2017 Nuns Fire in Sonoma County. Seventeen burglaries have been reported in evacuated neighborhoods.

However, the reduced wind speed aided in curtailing the blazes which helped the firefighters to extend the buffer lines.

It said: "Throughout the day crews will continue to mitigate spot fire potential across control lines".

Meanwhile, firefighters were engaged in a pitched battle to contain at least 19 major wildfires that have claimed at least six lives and charred hundreds of square miles in recent weeks.

The east-west route in the park - Big Oak Flat Road, or California 120 West, to Crane Flat and Tioga Road, or California 120 East - remains open.

Unlike the Carr Fire, authorities don't know what started the Ferguson Fire, which has now engulfed almost 63,000 acres.

Although the Ferguson Fire - which is 33 percent contained and has burned about 58,000 acres - has so far not spread to Yosemite, it is keeping parts of the popular park closed through Sunday, according to The Los Angeles Times. Evacuations were underway for an unspecified number of residents, and more information was expected later Wednesday morning.
