Prescribed Fire Postponed

CTNF

A prescribed fire by crews on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest in the Hill Creek area north of Darby Canyon has been delayed.   The Hill Creek Prescribed Fire Project is intended to burn approximately 30 to 50 percent of the 6,700 acres within the target area located about four miles east of Driggs, Idaho. That project had been set to take place last week, but Spokesman Lynn Ballard says the conditions were simply not favorable for the burn to take place.  Ballard says once the project is begun, it will likely mean smoke will infiltrate into the Jackson Hole area.  Ballard says the burn areas are flanked by areas that have seen prescribed fires in previous years.  Once completed, forest officials say the project will benefit big game and aspen communities, increase biodiversity across the Teton Range and decrease fuels in the wildland-urban interface.  The multi-year project is the result of a partnership between Wyoming Game and Fish, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
