Pile burning at Yellowstone’s northeast entrance will result in smoke today

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Smoke at the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park is merely wildland park staff burning burn piles of woody debris today.

Staff will ignite the piles between 9-10am. Smoke can be expected in the area after 9am and perhaps throughout Tuesday morning.

Burning the piles is the last step of the Firewise project where staff removes vegetation around buildings in order to reduce the threat of wildfire.
