Road Reopened Between Norris and Canyon


The road between Norris and Canyon in Yellowstone National Park has reopened after closing last night due to increased activity on the Cygnet fire.

Due to reduced visibility, ongoing suppression activity, and for the safety of firefighters on the ground, vehicles are being escorted through this road corridor.

The Cygnet Fire is a lightning-caused fire 5 miles southwest of Canyon Village and was approximately 1700 acres early Thursday afternoon. The fire was discovered on August 10.

Updated road information can be obtained 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117.
