The Fishhawk Fire near Yellowstone National Park grew to more than 10,000 acres Thursday, fire officials said.
Mandatory evacuations of the Kitty Creek drainage area and Buffalo Bill Boy Scout Camp were ordered Wednesday.
The fire near Cody, Wyo., had grown significantly to the north, and hotshot crew are staged at the Boy Scout camp to monitor the fire overnight.
A fireline is being built around structures in the Kitty creek area.
