Interagency fire officials have now reduced the fire danger to moderate following several days of moisture and cooler temperatures. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says although fire officials are calling the fire danger rating moderate, hunters and other on the forest for recreation should continue to exercise caution and always ensure campfires are cold to the touch before leaving them. In moderate fire danger, fires can still start easily and spread at a moderate rate. Fires in open-cured grassland will burn briskly and spread rapidly on windy days. While fire restrictions were lifted last week in the Park and on the Forest, they remain in effect for Teton County and elsewhere in the state.
