This video is from the last fire retardant drop of Thursday from a C-130 piloted by Lt. Col Bryan Allen. It shows the Rim Fire on the left and Yosemite Valley on the east.

The fire has created what's called a pyro cumulus cloud billowing over the Stanislaus National Forest west of Yosemite National Park.
