Yellowstone Fires Grow

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.
