Yellowstone Fires Grow

August 27, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
YNP Sign

Fires in Yellowstone National Park have shown significant growth over the past few days as a result of the hot, dry weather and brisk winds.  The Cygnet Fire, located about five miles southeast of Norris Junction is not estimated at just over 1400 acres.  While it remains a managed fire, crews continue to protect a utility corridor south of the road between Norris and Canyon in the event the fire reaches that area.  Meanwhile, the Range fire which is about 8 ½ miles southwest of Tower Fall is now about 140 acres and the Dewdrop Fire nine miles southeast of Canyon Village has remained about 110 acres.  Fire crews have joined the efforts to manage the fires, traveling to Yellowstone from Saguaro National Park in Arizona, Big Thicket National Preserve in Texas, The Gallatin National Forest, Park County Rural Fire Department and Paradise Valley Fire Department – both from Montana.  Impacts to area residents and visitors are minimal.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
