Even as Jackson Hole has been experiencing cooler, damper weather, fires continue to burn on the Bridger Teton National Forest.  Among them is the Little Horsethief Canyon Fire which is now considered 96% contained and remains at 3373 acres.  To the north, the North Buffalo Fire now involves 28,600 acres in the Teton Wilderness and continues to be monitored by 20 people to assure it does not move southward toward the Buffalo Valley area.    Several trails in the area are closed to public access.  On the southern end of the forest, the Fontenelle Fire has involved 64,220 acres, but only three firefighters continue to patrol the fire’s perimeter and mop-up spots that may pose a threat to containment lines.  Finally, northwest of Daniel Junction the Chall Creek Fire’s 687 acres are 100% contained, and 76 firefighters there continue to mop-up hot spots.  Fire activity there is considered minimal.
