El Portal Fire

The El Portal Fire, just outside the western entrance to Yosemite National Park, started early in the day Saturday 7/26/14. By afternoon it had grown to a large fire that threatened our neighborhood in El Portal’s NPS housing area. As we prepared for possible evacuation on Saturday, I took photos and video with my iPhone when I had the opportunity. Early on Sunday I took my camera (Canon 7D) to a location near our apartment where firefighting helicopters filled their tanks. I shot a couple hours worth of HD video. I had posted several videos to Instagram, and YouTube, and shortly afterward was contacted by ABC, and NBC asking for permission to use my video for their broadcasts.
