Evacuation Advisory Still In Place At Red Top

September 30, 2012 Bridger Teton National Forest, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
