New Fires Erupt On Forest

Fire Generic

Interagency fire crews continue to scramble in response to several new fires that have recently popped up on Bridger Teton National Forest.  Mop-up of a 2-acre fire at the head of Dog Creek continue after that fire was contained Sunday – however, a ten-person crew aided by a helicopter are working a five-acre fire on the Greys River District near the head of Lost Creek.  That lightning-caused fire was reported Tuesday and is smoldering and creeping in heavy timber.  Meanwhile, the six-day old North Buffalo Fire is being battled by a hotshot crew from Nevada, six smokejumpers and two helicopters but continues to expand in the beetle killed trees and heavy dead and down timber.  That fire is now estimated to involve over 12,584 acres.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
