While those fires that have burned this summer on the Bridger Teton National Forest are not yet considered “out,” the recent rains and snow have contributed to them now being considered inactive. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the storm has been considered, quite literally, a watermark for the season. She says the forest considers the weather system that moved through the area a season-ending event. However, the says it will take firefighters on the ground to confirm that. Among the fires no longer considered active are the Butte Creek Fire deep in the Teton Wilderness, the Bear Cub Fire north of Togwotee Pass in the Teton Wilderness, the North Buffalo Fire north of Buffalo Valley, the Little Horesethief Canyon Fire just south of Jackson, and the Rock Creek Fire near Red Top Meadows. Other fires on the southern portion of the forest did not benefit as much from the weather system and are still considered active.
