Fires In Greater Yellowstone Area Grow

Hardluck Fire

Two fires in the Greater Yellowstone Area continue to grow. The Hardluck Fire located north of Togwotee Pass on the Shoshone National Forest continues to grow, and is being managed for its resource benefits.  That fire, which was discovered on a surveillance flight by Bridger Teton National Forest, was started by lightning.  In that time, it has grown from a little more than two acres to involve 384 acres. 20 firefighers and one helicopter are assigned to the fire to monitor fire behavior and assess what threat it might pose to structures on private property located about 12 miles north of the fire area. Several trails in the area are closed in the interest of safety.  Meanwhile, the Emigrant Fire north of Yellowstone National Park in Park County, Montana has grown to 450 acres now, but still does not pose an immediate threat to private property there.  The fire, which was reported Sunday morning, was lightning-caused.  75 firefighters, two helicopters, and four engines are currently assigned to the fire.
