Yellowstone fire danger level raised to high

The fire danger level for Yellowstone National Park is now high.

There are no fire restrictions currently in place in the park, but campfires are only permitted within established fire rings in campgrounds and some backcountry campsites. All campfires must be cold to the touch before abandoning. Soak, stir, feel, repeat.

On Sunday, a new lightning-caused wildland fire was detected approximately one mile west of Dunraven Pass.

The 0.1-acre Carnelian Fire is smoldering in an area that last burned in 1988., and crews are monitoring the fire. Smoke may be visible from the park road.
