Rockslide closes entrance to Yosemite National Park

A warning if you're heading to Yosemite later today: you'll need to find a different route.

A rockslide has forced the closure of state Route 140 heading into the park. The National Park Service says the slide happened where the Dog Rock fire previously burned and that may have been a factor.

There's no estimated time on when 140 will reopen, but park rangers say it'll be closed at least throughout the rest of the day.
