Teton Interagency Fire personnel plan to conduct the final phase of the Lava Creek prescribed fire as soon as spring conditions are suitable. The project is to take place near the Wilderness Ranches home sites, directly north of Highway 26/287 and east of Grand Teton National Park. The final treatment block includes 115 acres and lies directly west of 211 acres successfully treated with prescribed fire in the spring of 2012. Sagebrush and grass intermixed with aspen near Buffalo Valley developments are being eliminated through the project. The burn is being conducted in cooperation with Bridger Teton National Forest, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Jackson Hole Fire/EMS and private landowners in the Buffalo Valley area. Fire officials say smoke may be visible in Buffalo Valley along Highway 26/287 during and after the treatment.
