Smoke continues to pour into the valley from fires burning in other states across the west. However, some of the local fires are also becoming more active now as well. The Butte Creek Fire in the Teton Wilderness is 100 acres and becoming increasingly active with open flame and some torching in heavy fuels of dead and down beetle killed trees. Some trails in the area of the fire have been closed in the interest of safety. Activity on the Fontenelle Fire has also increased due to higher temperatures and drying out of fine fuels, grass and sage. There are currently no closures in place, but the public is being advised to be aware of hazards that are present in the fire area including fire vehicles in use by fire personnel working the fire. The Bear Cub Fire in the Teton Wilderness is also still burning but has not seen significant spread in recent weeks.
