The series of storms that rolled through Jackson Hole over the weekend sparked at least seven small wildfires that were quickly suppressed by Teton Interagency Fire personnel. Grand Teton National Park Fire Communication and Education Specialist Tracy Weaver says however, others could still turn up as sleeper fires from other strikes. She says a lot of times, lightning will strike somewhere when the storms come through and the fire it starts may just smolder until and not flare up until the conditions dry and it gets a little bit windy. Consequently, there may be more fire starts to respond to over the next several days. Along with the weekend storms, the weather has cooled and that, in turn, prompts those outdoors to enjoy end of the season activities to build warming fires. Weaver points out that even though the fire danger rating here has been reduced to “moderate,” care still needs to be taken with the use of open fires. She says people become complacent about campfires once there is some rain, temperatures cool and the fire danger is reduced . However, she quickly points out that just because we are in moderate fire danger, it doesn’t mean we can’t have a new fire; it just means once there is a fire, it won’t spread quite as rapidly as when the fire danger is higher. Active fires still burning in Grand Teton National Park and on the Bridger Teton National Forest prior to lightning storm number six and range from a tenth of an acre to over one thousand.
