YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Recent rains in Yellowstone National Park have allowed officials there to lift the prohibition on open campfires.

The rains also have helped firefighting crews to suppress the Blacktail Fire near the park’s northern boundary. The fire began July 12 and has burned 29 acres. It’s now about 95 percent contained and officials say they expect it will be fully contained by next week.

Campfires in the park must not be left unattended and may only be lighted in designated areas.
