Fire danger throughout Yellowstone National Park has been reduced to low now due to autumn precipitation. Park officials say as such, there are no fire restrictions currently in place. However, campfires are only permitted within fire rings in campgrounds and some back country campsites. Of course, all campfires must be cold to the touch before leaving the site. At this time, there are no active fires burning in Yellowstone. Fire danger farther south in the Teton Interagency Fire area remains high. Hunters frequenting the area at this time are reminded to be very careful with their use of campfires or warming fires. In fall of 2018, a hunter’s abandoned fire started the “Roosevelt Fire” south of Jackson. That fire burned over 61,000 acres and destroyed 58 homes.
