Lone Star Fire status

Weather impacts Lone Star Fire status

Colder weather and frost are impacting the Lone Star Fire status, as fire crews will continue to monitor the biggest fire of the summer, which isn’t spreading but smoldering and retaining heat in many spots.

Though there’s no rain in the 10-day Yellowstone weather forecast, lower nighttime temperatures will continue to impact the fire. In a week the forecast calls for below-freezing overnight temperatures.

This may be the last report you receive; Yellowstone officials and InciWeb say they will not provide any more Lone Star Fire status reports unless things change. We’ll continue to monitor the Lone Star Fire.
