evacuation

As of 10:00 am, county officials had not lifted the evacuation advisory in place for residents of Red Top Meadows and said they would continue to evaluate the situation into the afternoon to determine if that advisory can be lifted.  The 30-acre Rock Creek Fire continues to smolder on the Bridger-Teton National Forest about ½ mile south of Red Top Meadows on Munger Mountain. The fire was discovered around 4:30 pm Saturday burning in sagebrush, aspen and grasses. Firefighters from the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Teton Interagency Firefighters and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS from Teton County, Wyoming all responded and immediately began suppressing the blaze. Today crews will focus their efforts on control and containment of the fire. This includes beginning to eliminate any hot pockets and stir ashes and burned stumps to make sure that the heat is dissipated and winds won’t rekindle the fire. Residents can still expect to see smoke and fire apparatus in the area. Recreationists are asked to use caution in the area and to stay clear of fire operations and be alert for large fire equipment operating in the vicinity. The cause of this fire is under investigation and could be either human caused with hunting activity currently in that area, or of natural origin from lightning that moved through the area earlier in the week.
