Western Wyoming, October 19, 2021— Sufficient winter weather conditions exist to allow fire personnel on the Bridger-Teton National Forest to begin annual slash pile burning. During the summer months, crews have been stacking downed timber and brush into 10-foot-high tepee-like piles waiting for ideal conditions to burn them. Pile burning could begin as early as this week and last into November 2021. Press Release
