Wildfire Doused On Mormon Row

Fire Antelope

Interagency firefighters aided by a unit from Teton County Fire/EMS doused a brush fire Wednesday night on Mormon Row, after lightning sparked the blaze shortly before 6:00 pm.  Grand Teton National Park Fire Communication and Education Specialist Tracy Weaver says the fire was about 3/4 of a mile south of the Moulton Barn which last week was the subject of a 100th anniversary celebration.  Weaver says two Interagency fire engines along with a tender from Teton County responded with an unknown number of Interagency firefighters aided by individual resources.  By shortly after 7:00 pm, the fire was declared contained at between 1½ and two acres.  Meanwhile, Weaver says lightning also caused a fire in south fork of the Fall Creek drainage near the Caribou-Targhee National Forest boundary.  A heli-attack team responded to the fire and found two trees and surrounding vegetation burning.  Since it involved relatively heavy fuels, Weaver says it was not as quickly suppressed as the Mormon Row Fire.

    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
