The governor of California Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for San Francisco after power lines providing electricity to the city were threatened by a wildfire raging at the edge of Yosemite National Park, according to Reuters.
The fire has damaged the electrical infrastructure serving the city, and forced the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to shut down power lines, the governor said in his declaration.
