Park Reminds Visitors to Stay Safe Distance from Wildlife This Fall
The onset of fall in Yellowstone, with its cooler temperatures and snow in the high country, prompts many animals to start moving to lower elevations.

The fire activity increased in the late afternoon and spotted to the east into Canfield Creek and Cabin Creek. Single tree and group tree torching were reported. A smaller spot fire was located in a scree slope in the top third of Cabin Creek.

An infrared flight was flown late in the evening to evaluate the change in the fire perimeter. Firefighters focused on structure protection. Sprinklers, hose lays and pumps are prepped at many of the structures to enhance the level of protection, should the fire progress towards the developments.
