It’s the latest in a series of fires in Yellowstone that have forced the evacuation of thousands of people from the park, including the area’s top tourist destination, the Grand Canyon.
The fire is the second fire to threaten the park in two days.
On Tuesday, a small wildfire burned near a visitor center.
The cause is under investigation.
The fires are part of a nationwide wildfire season that began on Nov. 6.
In Yellowstone, a large wildfire burned Monday afternoon, prompting a number of evacuations.
In the first two days of the wildfire, the National Park Service reported more than 10,000 wildfires burning in 18 states.
This fire season has been the most active on record, with more than 3,000 fires reported in the park.
