Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. • More rain helped to control five wildfires burning in mostly remote areas of Yellowstone National Park but park officials were still keeping an eye out for flare-ups.
The biggest of the fires, the 12-square-mile Alum Fire, remained active around its perimeter but wasn't growing much. Heavy smoke from the fire 5 miles north of Lake Village briefly closed the road between Fishing Bridge and Canyon Village on Tuesday.
The fire calmed down considerably after heavy rain Wednesday and more rain Thursday helped keep the flames tamped down.
