The fire danger level at Yellowstone National Park has reached moderate conditions, according to a news release from the park.

No fire restrictions have been implemented, and there are currently no active wildfires in the park. Campfires are allowed only in the fire rings of the campground and several backcountry campsites. Visitors should never leave an active campfire unattended. Use the soak, stir, feel, and repeat method when extinguishing campfires. The fire should be left cold before leaving the area.

The news release also mentions that fire is important in regulating the health of the Greater Yellowstone habitat. The fire-adapted ecosystem relies on fires for plant structure and composition and also helps with nutrient cycling. Without fires, the biodiversity of Yellowstone would decline.
