Butte Creek Fire Not Supressed

The Butte Creek Fire in the Teton Wilderness is attracting a certain amount of national attention, simply because the decision was made to manage the fire for its resource benefits rather than suppress it. That makes it the only fire right now that is not being actively suppressed from the start. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek explains that its location deep in the wilderness and in a rugged alpine area at 9500 feet makes it perfect for this approach. She says there is quite a bit of beetle kill and dead and down wood in that area that this fire has the potential to clean up and enhance the habitat there for the future. Currently, Cernicek says the one-acre fire is smoldering and creeping on the ground. However, should it become more active, it could put smoke into the Cody area.
