Yellowstone Fire Danger Raised to Very High
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Yellowstone National Park has increased its fire danger level to very dry.
However, there are no fire restrictions in the park yet.
The fire danger in Grand Teton National Park is rated high.
About half dozen fires are burning in Wyoming, but the most active fires have seen little growth in recent days.
Most of the fires are being left to burn on their own because they are in remote areas and don’t pose a threat to any major infrastructure or danger to people.
Three fires are burning in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in northwest Wyoming.
The state’s largest fire so far this summer is the Hardluck Fire in the Shoshone National Forest. It has burned more than 24 square miles.
It has been allowed to burn.
