Yellowstone National Park’s fire danger has been downgraded to Moderate, according to the National Park Service.
The news comes after a bout of heavy rain and snow swept across western Montana earlier this week, a welcome sight for residents and firefighters.
Last week, we reported Yellowstone had been placed under “Very High” fire danger. No fire-related restrictions or closures were placed on the park, however.
As a whole, Yellowstone has had a relatively mild fire season; park staff previously predicted an average fire season for the park this summer.
Indeed, so far this season, no major fires have broken out within park boundaries.
