8/31/13, 12:15 pm Small fire in West Yellowstone, MT does not impact Yellowstone Park visitors

As a courtesy to our neighbors in West Yellowstone, we are posting a link to news of two small fires that lit Friday evening about ten miles southwest of West Yellowstone, and about ten miles outside of Yellowstone Park, in the Gallatin National Forest along the Idaho state line.

These fires currently have no impacts on visitors coming to the park through West Yellowstone.  The smaller of the fires is already completely contained Saturday morning.  The larger 30 acre "Two Top" fire has hotshot crews, smokejumpers, air resources and a bulldozer working to contain it.  Further news of this fire is available at or from the Gallatin National Forest at (406) 579-3732 .
