Fire Danger Still High

/
New Fire Near Hoback

Teton Interagency fire managers have lowered the fire danger rating to HIGH in the Teton and Wind fire danger rating areas. Elsewhere in the state, the rating remains at VERY HIGH. Despite the lowering of the rating, the chance for fires to start easily and spread quickly remains dangerous. Fire Managers are advising all public lands users and particularly campers and hunters, to use caution when building and maintaining campfires. So far in 2020 there have been 233 unattended or abandoned campfires discovered across the Teton Interagency Dispatch area. Attention throughout the fall should also be given to identifying other sources that could ignite a wildfire, such as discarded cigarettes or hot mufflers on vehicles parked in tall, dry grass. Stage 1 Fire Restrictions remain in effect in Teton County and across the Bridger-Teton National Forest, limiting fires to only developed campground and picnic and the Teton and Gros Ventre Wilderness areas.
