Wildfires continue to burn in the back country of Yellowstone Park Saturday evening. One of the biggest fires is about 450 acres in size.

It's burning at the south end of Yellowstone Lake. Fire crews are expecting it to burn toward the northeastern edge of the peninsula by the end of Saturday night. Some campsites on the peninsula are temporarily closed.
