The primary information page for this complex is www.druidcomplex.blogspot.com. Due to Inciweb outages, please visit us at www.druidcomplex.blogspot.com for maps, pictures, updates and information about fire in the ecosystem of Yellowstone National Park.
The Druid Complex is comprised of six fires. Three of the fires, Snake, Passage and Alder, are fairly inactive due to recent rains. Alum and Druid retain some heat, and show smoke and an occasional burning tree on warm days, but haven't grown or moved much in a few days. The Caldron Fire lit August 29 from a lightning strike east of the Yellowstone River and the Mud Volcano area. Damp conditions kept fire behavior minimal for the last week of August, although sun and beautiful warmer weather have returned for the Labor Day weekend.
