Fire Crews Travel To Colorado

GTNP Fire Engine 4

Not unexpectedly, Interagency Fire resources have begun to be deployed to other areas of the west to assist with efforts there.  Grand Teton National Park Fire Information and Education Specialist Traci Weaver says over the weekend, a 20-person crew was sent to Montrose, Colorado to be on hand for quick response to any starts there.  Weaver says the request came from the Forest Service there and the crew will most likely remain mainly on the forest to provide local response to fire starts.  In the meantime, Weaver says sufficient resources remain in the valley should there be an incident locally requiring response. Weaver says the Rocky Mountain Region is already considered in the top ten percent for fire risk with the hottest part of the summer still to come.
