MARIPOSA, CA (KTXL/CNN) - The El Portal fire had burned more than 3,000 acres of wilderness and was 19 percent contained as of Tuesday.

The National Park Service says the Yosemite National Park, including Yosemite Valley, remains open, with park entrances currently open.

The fire started along the western edge of Yosemite.

It is near the Dark Hole fire, which remains just more than 500 acres in size and is smoldering.

Since the El Portal fire is such a larger threat, fire officials have moved resources over to fight the El Portal fire.

The cause of the El Portal fire is unknown.
