YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif.

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.
