Pile Burns Under Way On Caribou-Targhee NF

slash

Fire crews have begun burning debris piles in multiple locations throughout in the Teton Basin and Palisades Ranger Districts of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.  Piles have been built to clean up limbs and brush in camp grounds and other recreation and wood gathering sites.  Weather permitting, burning could extend several weeks into this month.  Fire management personnel prefer burning piles during or after an area has received significant moisture to provide greater security from fire creeping away from the ignited piles and to minimize heat production to reduce effects to surrounding trees.  Areas where burns are slated to take place include Teton Canyon Trailhead, Darby Camp and Pine Creek Pass in the Teton Basin District and Alpine Campground, Alpine 4H Camp, Blowout Campground and McCoy Creek Road in the Palisades District.  Smoke from the fires will likely be visible through the area during the burns.
