Moonlight Fire Update

Shifting winds are sending smoke from a remote Sierra Nevada forest fire back toward the San Francisco Bay area.

The massive smoke plumes that had prompted haze and health warnings hundreds of miles away last week are back due to gusts
pushing the growing Moonlight fire back toward the south and southwest.

The blaze has now topped 62,000 acres, and containment fell to 15 percent.

Meanwhile, firefighters south of San Jose were expected to fully
contain a 47,000-acre blaze in Henry W. Coe State Park.

The weeklong blaze has destroyed three cabins and two other buildings and left four firefighters with minor injuries.
