Near Miss on Illegal Snow King Camp Fire

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Units from Jackson Hole Fire/EMS were summoned Tuesday evening to where a fire had been spotted on Snow King above town. It turned out to be a campfire that had been built on forest land – which the firefighters quickly put out. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says fire restrictions allow fires only in designated and installed fire rings or grills at designated recreation sites such as established campgrounds or picnic areas. All open burning in Teton County has been banned by a proclamation from the Teton County Board of Commissioners. The campfire on Snowking was not allowed.
