New Fire In GTNP

Forest Fire

Teton Interagency Fire crews are suppressing a new fire reported about early Monday afternoon at the southwest side of Emma Matilda Lake in Grand Teton National Park. Park Fire Education and Information Specialist Traci Weaver says the one-acre fire is burning in grass, sage and light timber with occasional trees torching.  Weaver says firefighters were able to halt the fire’s spread by 3:30 pm and continue efforts to control the blaze. As a safety precaution, rangers implemented temporary closures at the Christian Pond and Oxbow Bend Overlook trailheads. They also made contact with people hiking Two Ocean Lake and Grand View trails to alert visitors recreating in the vicinity.  Like the several other recent fires in the area, Weaver says the Emma Matilda Fire is believed to be lightning caused.
