Jerry Rupert describes Tuesday, July 29, 2014, how he witnessed the start of the El Portal fire Saturday while he was taking a shower outside at his El Portal, Calif., home. Rupert believes the fire was caused by a branch falling on an electrical wire. Fire crews gained ground Tuesday on two of the largest wildfires in California, lifting evacuation orders for about half the homes in the path of a blaze in Yosemite National Park and redeploying firefighters battling another fire in the Sierra Nevada foothills east of Sacramento.

The Rev. LeRoy Haynes Jr., pastor at Allen Temple, and others with the Albina Ministerial Alliance hold a news conference in Portland, Ore., date not known. Haynes and the Rev. T. Allen Bethel said that a settlement between the city and a police officer who placed plaques in a city park to honor five Nazi-era German soldiers "“an insult to every freedom- and justice-loving citizen” in the city. The officer, Capt. Mark Kruger, threatened to sue the city last year over texts sent by a top police official to an officer characterizing him as a Nazi sympathizer. Instead of going to court, the city settled, agreeing to give Kruger 80 hours of vacation and $5,000.  (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Faith Cathcart)
