Wildland Fire Activity in the Park
When fires occur in Yellowstone they are posted on a Fire Map (jpg) which shows the names, locations and status of fires during the current season. For more information about fire conditions, restrictions and recent activity, see our news page, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Wildland Fire Program
Our Wildland Fire Program pages explain how fires are managed within the park, and contain a wealth of information on fire ecology and the role that fire plays in the ecosystem.
Fire Activity During the Current Season
