Fires Continue On Forest

August 7, 2012 Bridger Teton National Forest, State of Wyoming No Comments
fire-high

More lightning-caused fires have been found on Bridger-Teton National Forest over the weekend despite occasional rain showers and cooler temperatures.  That really is no surprise as Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek points out that August is typically the heart of fire season. As such, she says the forest anticipated more fires as the summer continues and it is important that forest users continue to be responsible with the fires that they have out on the forest – making sure they are in designated, provided campfire rings or grills provided by the forest service.  In addition to the recent small fires that have been kept to a half-acre or less, Cernicek reminds that there are a number of larger active fires still burning on the forest.  Those fires include the Fontenelle Fire near Big Piney and the Butte Creek and Bear Cub Fires in the Teton Wilderness which have continued putting up smoke over the weekend. Cernicek says it is still very important that if forest users spot smoke somewhere, they report it as soon as possible so that crews can respond and quickly suppress it.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
