Firefighters with Teton Interagency Fire management program plan to take advantage of changing weather conditions as we move into late fall and winter to burn slash piles created from fuel reduction projects on public land and adjacent to private property. Burning is scheduled to begin as early as October 30 and expected to continue as weather is favorable.
Teton Interagency firefighters will be burning slash piles throughout the Forest and National Park for the next several days.
Forest visitors recreating on the Jackson Ranger District along the Trail Creek and Old Pass Road areas, are reminded that firefighters will be cleaning up debris pile’s in these areas over the next three or four days. Smoke may be visible in the early morning hours or in the evenings as cool air settles into the canyon area. For those commuting along Highway 22, please use caution for public safety. Drive with headlights on, observe smoke information signs posted along the roadside. Thank you for your patience as fire and fuels managers continue to impliment this important work.
