The 33-acre Rock Creek Fire on the Bridger-Teton National Forest approximately 10-miles south of Jackson is now considered 100% contained. The fire was discovered around 4:30 pm on Saturday burning in sagebrush, aspen and grasses not far from the Red Top Meadows subdivision. Firefighters from the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Teton Interagency Firefighters and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS all responded and immediately began suppressing the blaze. Authorities imposed an evacuation advisory for the Red Top Meadows area through Saturday night, but it was cancelled about noon Sunday after the fire had been reduced to only smoldering in some areas. Firefighters anticipate full control later today. Investigators have still not established a cause for the fire, but say there had been lightning in the area earlier in the week as well as hunting activity.
