Yellowstone fire information:

The south entrance of Yellowstone National Park remains closed due to the Berry Fire in Grand Teton National Park. Park visitors wishing to enter/exit through the south entrance of Yellowstone National Park will be unable to do so at this time. Fire managers currently anticipate being able to reopen access to the south entrance sometime Tuesday, August 30. This is subject to change dependent on weather and fire conditions. All other entrances to Yellowstone remain open at this time; this includes the east entrance, northeast entrance (Cooke City), north entrance (Gardiner), and west entrance (West Yellowstone).

Yesterday the Maple Fire grew approximately 1,650 acres. The Maple Fire is approximately 3.8 miles from West Yellowstone, 1.8 miles from Madison Junction and 3.7 miles from the Mount Holmes Lookout. Last night the fire approached the road in the area of the 7 Mile Bridge and is visible from the road. Traffic control may be implemented if heavy smoke is present on the road.

A Chinook helicopter dropped water on the northwest corner of the fire to assist firefighters. Today fire crews will be deploying hose lays near Cougar Creek in support of potential burnout operations designed to confine the fire within the park. Small burnout operations will continue as opportunities present themselves in the 7 Mile Bridge area to provide a clean fire edge that reduces spotting, flanking, and other control issues while providing an anchor point for crews along the southern flank to hold the fire north of the Madison River (west of 7 Mile Bridge).
