A key highway into Yosemite National Park has reopened.

Traffic started moving again Saturday on State Route 120. The Forest Service closed the road nearly three weeks ago, when the Rim Fire started.

The 400-square-mile fire is 81 percent contained. Full containment is expected by the end of the week.

The fire started when an illegal camp fire got out of control.
