Firefighters Respond To A Wildfire at Red Top Meadows

Rock Creek Fire

Interagency firefighters joined with Jackson Hole Fire/EMS personnel and an interagency helicopter to suppress a fire near Red Top Meadows on south Fall Creek Road, which flared up about 3:30 Wednesday afternoon.  The fire was doused before dark. Fire Marshal Kathy Clay says the firemay have been the delayed result of a lightning strike earlier this week, but human causes have not been ruled out.  Firefighters were able to hold the fire to about one acre of aspen and sagebrush.  No structures were threatened although there were houses not far from the site. Forest officials are looking for two other fires nearby that were seen torching last night on the front of the same hillside.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
