YELLOWSTONE — Yellowstone’s wildfire season began recently with two lightning-ignited wildfires.
The Sour Fire, located near the Mirror Plateau, was spotted by the park’s Mount Washburn Lookout on the afternoon of August 1. Precipitation fell on the fire shortly after detection and it has not been seen since.
The Soda Fire, located several hundred yards south of the Soda Butte formation in Lamar Valley, was reported by a visitor on August 3, in the evening. Fire staff suppressed the fire due to its location.
