Forest Doing Controlled Burns

Written by on October 17, 2018

There may be smoke near the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone today, due to an ongoing attempt by the Forest Service to reduce the threat of wildfires.
Wildland fire staff planned to burn piles of woody debris near the Northeast Entrance yesterday, and that work will produce smoke that could last through today.
The Shoshone National Forest office points out that burning the piles is the last step of the Firewise project, in which staff removed vegetation around buildings in order to reduce the threat of wildfire.
