With the weather heating up, the fire danger is also rising.
In a press release from Yellowstone National Park, the park announced that they are raising the fire danger level from MODERATE to HIGH.
Just a few weeks ago, Yellowstone National Park raised the level from LOW to MODERATE.
With the rising temperatures and lack of moisture, Yellowstone decided to raise the fire danger warning.

There aren't currently any wild fires in the park so that means that there are zero fire restrictions currently in Yellowstone National Park
Campfires though are only permitted within established fire rings in campground and some back country locations as well.

Yellowstone National Park mantra when putting out your campfire is: SOAK, STIR, FEEL, REPEAT.
Makes sense right?
