More Lightning Fires Turn Up In NW Wyoming

snag

Teton Interagency firefighters responded Monday afternoon to two new fires on the northern end of Bridger Teton National Forest.  Additional firefighting resources are working on several other fires elsewhere on the forest.  At 4:15 pm, a fire was reported on Huckleberry Ridge in the Teton Wilderness of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, south of Yellowstone National Park. This fire is visible from Gros Ventre Junction and resources are traveling to the fire to determine the types of fuels or materials that the fire is burning, and the size of the fire. Firefighters were also called to a fire near Swift Creek on the Greys River Ranger District just outside Afton. The Swift fire is currently about 1/10 acre and burning in heavy timber.  Meanwhile, the Rock Creek Fire discovered Sunday is a small fire that is still burning west of Mount Leidy on the Buffalo Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, and the Moose Fire in Webb Canyon in Grand Teton National Park is now about two acres and is being managed for its resource benefits.  All of these fires are the result of delayed starts from lightning strikes.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
