8/28/2013, 2:45pm: The makings of fireline

For you photo-philes out there, we've posted more pics on the Yellowstone Flickr account ( of the fire and the work being done by firefighters. Most preparations for continued fire growth should be completed by the middle of next week, accomplishing the objective to protect structures in the Lake area.

  1. The use of feller-bunchers in a wilderness area is completely inappropriate. This measure is totally contrary to the purpose of fire management in national parks--which is to protect the natural (and cultural) resources. The threat to human safety is, of course, of paramount consideration, but appropriate action could have and should have been taken without this wholesale and unwarranted destruction of park lands.
