Yosemite wildfiresAuthorities have sent evacuation orders to some 13,000 phone numbers as an out-of-control wildfire bears down on a foothill community near Yosemite National Park in central California.

Sheriff John Anderson issued the evacuation orders late Monday and declared a local state of emergency in Madera County.

The 13,000 calls to evacuate included both homes and businesses, and it was not immediately clear how many people were involved, sheriff’s spokeswoman Erica Stuart said.

Four hotels in the community of Oakhurst about 16 miles away from an entrance to Yosemite were evacuated and Tuesday classes have been canceled for most of the Yosemite Unified School District.
