Forest employees were summoned to douse four unattended campfires over the weekend which, although they did not escape the campfire rings, posed a threat to the increasingly dry vegetation around them. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the fire danger here is still classified as low, but that doesn’t mean campfires can be allowed to burn unsupervised. Cernicek stresses that it is a forest user’s responsibility to stay with that fire while it is burning and completely put it out before leaving it. She says as things are drying out, it could lead to the start of a forest fire. Additionally, Cernicek says at least one of the fires was full of items that should not be thrown into a campfire, not only for the sake of environmental considerations, but for safety as well. She says such things as glass, aluminum and especially aerosol cans should never be placed in a fire. All trash should always be packed out. Cernicek says three of the abandoned campfires were found in the Granite Creek area of the forest south of Jackson and the fourth was along Fall Creek road south of Wilson.
