Fast-growing wildfire forces evacuation of Sequoia-Kings Canyon NP HQ

Two wildfires sparked by lightning strikes last week grew roughly five times in size Tuesday, with blazes towering across more than 5,000 acres in California as officials worry of threats to Sequoia National Park.

Mark Ruggiero, a spokesperson for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, said Tuesday that the Paradise and Colony fires, which are collectively known as the KNP Complex, grew to 5,681 acres by Tuesday afternoon, according to The Los Angeles Times.
