Continued hot, dry weather, fire activity in the region, and the current fire danger rating of Very High has prompted Yellowstone  National Park to implement temporary fire restrictions effective noon Friday,  that’s according to park spokesman Al Nash.

•     Lighting, building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire of any kind is prohibited in the backcountry including established campsites. Campfires are only allowed in an established fire grate at front country campgrounds, picnic areas, or housing areas.  Use of portable stoves and lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel, or use of a fully enclosed sheepherder type stove with a spark arrester screen is permitted.

•     Smoking is prohibited in the backcountry and on all trails.  It is permissible in the front country only in an enclosed vehicle or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or
cleared of all flammable materials.

•     All are reminded that the discharge of fireworks in Yellowstone National Park is prohibited and subject to penalties including fines and jail time.

Anyone negligently or willfully starting a wildland fire can be held responsible for the costs of the fire and charged with a crime. To report any wildland fire observed in Yellowstone National Park please
call 911.

These temporary restrictions are designed to protect people, property, and
the area’s natural resources.  They will remain in place until further
notice and may be elevated, relaxed or rescinded at any time due to changes
in weather and fire danger.
