Article about the Yellowstone fires. These fires together formed the largest wildfire in the recorded history of the U.S.'s Yellowstone National Park.

The fires almost destroyed two major visitor destinations and, on September 8, 1988, the entire park was closed to all non-emergency personnel for the first time in its history.Only the arrival of cool and moist weather in the late autumn brought the fires to an end. A total of 793,880 acres (3,213 km2), or 36 percent of the park was affected by the wildfires.
