GROVELAND, Calif. (AP) - The huge wildfire near Yosemite National Park in California is prompting air quality warnings more than 100 miles away.

The smoky haze has triggered emergency warnings along parts of the eastern Sierra near Carson City, Nev. School children were kept inside yesterday, for the second time in a week.

People are going to hospitals, complaining of eye and throat irritation.
