Injuries after tree falls at camp near Yosemite

SONORA, Calif. - A representative for a summer camp near Yosemite National Park says some adults have been injured after a tree fell there.

Gregg Rubenstein, director of finance for Camp Tawonga, said Wednesday camp officials were still assessing the situation, and he did not have additional details about the severity of the injuries or how many people were injured.

State fire spokesman Daniel Berlant says he has received reports of 20 injuries.

Rubenstein said no children, however, were among the injured.

The camp describes itself as a leader in "Jewish camping." It is located in a remote area of Tuolumne County in the community of Groveland. Its offices are based in San Francisco.

Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jim Oliver said the sheriff was en route to the site and could not be reached for comment.
