Neighbors of the Bridger-Teton National Forest can expect to see fire activity through the forest area this spring, as fire managers prepare to conduct multiple prescribed burns. Three prescribed burns are presently scheduled for the Jackson and Buffalo Ranger Districts. The primary purpose for these burns is to modify hazardous fuels adjacent to Wildland Urban Interface areas. Completion of these prescribed fires will increase the chances for controlling a wildfire before it reaches private structures. Projects include a burn in the lava Creek drainage near Buffalo Valley, 500 acres at Beaver Mountain near Hoback Junction, and 1200 acres at Willow Creek southeast of Hoback Junction. Local residents and visitors are asked to exercise caution in the vicinity of active burn units.
