Ferguson Fire more than doubles in size

A wildfire limited access to Yosemite National Park

More resources are headed to the Ferguson Fire in Northern California as it continues to grow. "Cal Fire and our Honor Guard have been by his side the entire time".

This morning it is 9,266 acres and two-percent contained.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman John DeYoe says the blaze has scorched 14 square miles (36 kilometers) of brush and timber as of Monday morning.

On Saturday, a heavy equipment operator died on the fire line trying to dig a trench to keep the flames from extending into a nearby community. He had been with Cal Fire for more than 10 years. She described it as in a "very precarious" situation but "we're certainly going to do everything in our powers to bring Braden home" by Saturday night.

Overnight officials were able to conduct an overhead flight of the Ferguson Fire to gain a better size estimate.

McLean said Varney's death is still under investigation.

The cause of the fire is yet to be known and now under investigation. "It puts a heaviness and awareness on just how fragile everything is", Fire Information Officer Anne Grandy said. The fire burning in steep and inaccessible terrain has proved most challenging for firefighters. "He does a lot of work in the community", Koerperich said. "Additional engines are being inserted into Jerseydale and Yosemite West to formulate structure protection plans", the website said. Road closures are still in place.

The bulldozer rolled over during the incident and first responders weren't immediately able to retrieve Varney's body, Koerperich said.

The next phase will be the escort of HFEO Braden Varney to the Stanislaus County Coroner's Office.
