Several wildfires in the eastern Sierra continue to burn, with the Mountain View Fire in Mono County burning nearly 29,000 acres and claiming one death in 24 hours, authorities said.

The fire that broke out Friday has burned more than 1,500 acres in less than an hour, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. By Wednesday, it had burned a total of 28,879 hectares.
