Prosecution Considered In Little Horsethief Canyon Fire

LHC Fire

Town, county and federal officials are considering prosecutorial measures in connection with the start of the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire Saturday.  Teton County and Prosecuting Attorney Steve Weichman, Fire Marshal Kathy Clay and federal investigators were on the scene of the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire Sunday investigating its origin. That’s where fire investigators from Jackson Hole Fire/EMS and Bridger Teton National Forest have determined the fire to have been human caused.  Weichman says his office will be working in conjunction with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in regards to potential prosecution of the matter.  In the meantime, says Jackson Hole Fire Chief, the public is asked to respect the integrity of the legal process.  Says Watsabaugh, “We’re working in partnership with the Forest Service to fully investigate and  move forward with this incident.”   Currently, the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire is reported to have burned 2638 acres and is approximately 10% contained.  Residents in the east Jackson area remain on alert for a potential evacuation should fire conditions deteriorate.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
