As of today, the Rim Fire is 30 percent contained, and fire crews say they're hoping to have the full blaze under control by Sept. 10.

And while thousands of firefighters have been working 'round the clock to tackle this out-of-control fire, Yosemite park officials have been documenting the historic blaze. They stitched together images showing different angles and perspectives of the wildfire which started on Aug. 17, and created this 2-minute time-lapse YouTube video for all of us to enjoy.

It's a nice, artsy take on the whole natural disaster.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
