Yellowstone fire danger level lowered


CASPER, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park’s fire danger level is now low.

The park previously listed the fire danger level as moderate, but lowered this designation on Monday, Sept. 23.

“There are no fire restrictions currently in place in the park,” Yellowstone says. “Campfires are only permitted within fire rings in our campgrounds and some backcountry campsites.”

“All campfires must be cold to the touch before leaving. Soak, stir, feel, repeat. Fireworks are not allowed in the park or on other federal lands. Learn more about what wildland fire danger levels mean.”

Yellowstone has seen nine fires so far in 2019. Park officials say five of those are out and four are being monitored.
