A continued pattern of mostly sunny skies, seasonal to above normal afternoon high temperatures, and abnormally dry to moderate drought conditions keep breathing life into three fires in Central Yellowstone which were started by lightning several weeks ago.
Isolated areas within the 2,800 acre perimeter of the Cygnet Fire are actively burning, especially during the afternoon and early evening. Those traveling along the Norris to Canyon road may encounter areas of dense smoke.
While the park fire danger level continues to be Extreme, there are no fire restrictions in the park. Visitors are encouraged to be careful with fire.
Future fire updates will be issued when conditions change.
