Fire At Pacific Creek Doused

Forest Fire

A fire near the national park boundary in the Pacific Creek Drainage caused some concern for those in the nearby residential area, but quick response held the fire to two acres and it was declared controlled hours later.  Grand Teton National Park Spokesperson Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles says the fire was reported about 5:30 Friday night and drew a response from fire crews aided by a helicopter, two Teton Interagency trucks and a brush truck from Jackson Hole Fire/EMS .  She says by noon Saturday, the fire was declared controlled.  The cause of the fire is still unknown, and is currently under investigation.  Meanwhile, the JDR Fire discovered southwest of Flagg Ranch Thursday has been declared controlled at ¼ acre, the Observation Fire near the Caribou-Targhee and Bridger-Teton National Forest Boundary in the Palisades Wilderness Study Area is undergoing suppression while the Haystack Fire in the Grey Hills area of Bridger-Teton National Forest is currently 90% contained at 52 acres.  Several other fires in the area are being managed for their resource benefits.
