Small Fire Detected in Yellowstone

Written by on August 26, 2019

Another small fire has been detected in a remote region of Yellowstone National Park.

On August 21st, a medical aircraft detected the 1-acre Wyodaho Fire about ¾ of a mile east of Wyodaho Lake, in the Bechler District of the Park. The fire is smoldering and creeping in grass and open timber, and is less than a mile from the Bechler River Trail, about 600 feet above the trail.

There are no trail or campsite closures associated with this fire although a one-mile diameter area closure has been implemented to provide a margin of safety around the fire area.

The fire will be monitored by fire personnel and the closure will be expanded or contracted as needed.
