Wildfire Sparks North of Buffalo Valley

North Buffalo

A third fire started Friday in the Teton Wilderness – this one now estimated to be about 4000 acres.    The North Buffalo Fire is located one mile north of the confluence of the Soda Fork and North Fork of the Buffalo River.  Forest officials say the fire is being suppressed, with suppression currently focused on the south and west side of the incident to keep it away from the Buffalo Valley area.  Fire officials say the cause of the fire is undetermined.  Other fires still burning in the Teton Wilderness are the Bear Cub Fire which currently involves about 6500 acres near the Pendergraft Meadow, and the Butte Creek Fire which involves 970 acres about 40-miles north of Dubois.  Those two fires are being managed for their resource benefits.
