The so-called KNP Complex fire, which was ignited by lightning earlier this month, reached the western edge of Sequoia National Park's Giant Forest, home to a group of ancient sequoia trees dubbed the Four Guardsmen. But protection measures including wrapping the bases of the huge trees in fire-resistant coverings kept safe "these national treasures," Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks officials wrote early on Sunday in a Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/SequoiaKingsNPS. The Guardsmen mark the entrance to the Giant Forest, a grove of some 2,000 sequoias.

Thousands of abandoned coal mines in the U.S. have been polluting rivers and streams for decades, in some cases harming fish and contaminating drinking water. Tucked into the Senate-passed infrastructure bill is $11.3 billion for the cleanup of defunct coal mines to be distributed over 15 years — money experts say would go a long way toward rehabilitating the sites that date back to before 1977. Cleanup efforts are currently funded by fees from coal mining companies, but that money has fallen far short of what’s needed to fix the problems.
Lava flowing from the Canary Islands' first volcanic eruption in 50 years has forced the evacuation of 5,500 people, destroyed at least 100 houses, and was expected to trigger toxic gases when it reaches the sea in the evening. No fatalities or injuries have been reported but the volcano was still active on Monday, with lava surging over houses as it made its way down the volcano's slopes towards the sea and heavy smoke billowing from the crater. The volcano will remain active for the next few days, regional leader Angel Victor Torres said.
