Fire Suppression Winding Down

Suppression efforts on the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire continue to dwindle as the fire itself continues to cool.  Currently, 211 individuals aided by two helicopters and four fire engines continue mopping up and completing the last of the fire lines around the 3373 acre fire – which as of Sunday afternoon were 96% contained.  At the same time, the crew camp at the Stilson Ranch area at the junction of Highways 22 and 390 has been struck and crews have relocated to the Teton County Fairgrounds for the remainder of the effort.  Those crews have been transitioned to a Type 4 team whose task will be to monitor the fire in the coming weeks until it can be declared out.  Cost of the fire suppression to date has totaled $8.4-million.
