Remote fire detected in Yellowstone

A medical aircraft detected the 1-acre Wyodaho Fire about -mile east of Wyodaho Lake in the Bechler District of Yellowstone National Park on August 21.

The fire is smoldering and creeping in grass and open timber and is less than a mile from the Bechler River Trail and about 600 feet above the trail.

There are no trail or campsite closures associated with this fire, although a one-mile diameter area closure has been implemented to provide a margin of safety around the fire area.

The fire will be monitored by fire personnel, and officials say the closure will be expanded or contracted as needed.
