Yellowstone Fire Danger “High”

fire-high

Yellowstone National Park officials have elevated their fire danger rating to “High” for the holiday weekend.  Spokesman Al Nash says between the fast-draying conditions around the park and the elevated visitation, it was determined the revised rating was warranted.  Nash says there has not been a lot of significant rainfall over the past few weeks, and with the warm and dry conditions and record temperatures over the past few days, the park is now in the midst of a high-visitation holiday weekend; and that is one of the factors they take into consideration when looking at the fire danger.  Nash says due to the nature of the park, the problem seen on neighboring Bridger-Teton National Forest with numerous abandoned campfires has not been an issue in Yellowstone – primarily due to the lack of diversified camping in the park.  Meanwhile, fire officials on the forest and in Grand Teton National Park are considering elevating the fire danger rating here as well.
