YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Two small wildfires are burning in Yellowstone National Park, but officials say they are in areas that do not pose a threat to tourists or park facilities.
The newest fire was discovered last Saturday and is located within a 1988 fire scar on the Blacktail Deer Plateau.
Smoke from the fire may be visible from the Grand Loop Road between Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower Junction in the northern part of the park.
A second small fire has been burning in a remote area on the western fringe of the park since July 20.
