Firefighters are continuing their efforts to suppress the Packer Creek Fire about 28 miles north of Pinedale which flared up Friday afternoon as a latent result of a lightning strike earlier in the week. Currently, more than 120 firefighting personnel are working on the ground, assisted by four helicopters, several heavy air tankers and eight fire engines. The Flying A Ranch was evacuated as a precaution and firefighters have put structure protections into place there. Currently the fire involves 340 acres. Four other small fires also erupted in Jackson Hole over the weekend including one on the north end of the park south of the Hatchet Resort east of Buffalo Valley, one at the end of Webb Canyon in Grand Teton National Park, one west of Red Top Meadows, one near Mt. Leidy and Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says others were found on the Pinedale Ranger District. Cernicek says the number of fires that have shown up in the past few days is not surprising to any of the fire officials. She says the dry conditions combined with a little bit of wind makes it right for a fire to take off even though the forest is rated in what is termed as moderate fire conditions. Meanwhile, the Emigrant Fire in Park County Montana north of Yellowstone National Park continues to burn actively, but has seen no significant growth over the weekend.
