Yellowstone Raises Fire Danger To ‘Very High’
The fire danger in Yellowstone National Park has been raised to “very high.” Yellowstone has seen 10 fires so far this season but nothing major. All park services and facilities are open. A new fire was discovered in Yellowstone on Thursday. The Heart Fire is located in the south central portion of the park, just northeast of Heart Lake. It is only a tenth of an acre in size. Another active fire has burned about six acres in the backcountry over the last month about 3 miles east of Madison Junction.
Meantime, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning Thursday for the Gallatin National Forest, which adjoins the north and west sides of Yellowstone.
