This fire is currently under investigation. Local outfitter and hunting guides called the smoke report and location into Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch on 10/16. Soon after, Teton Interagency Fire Module responded to the area and located the 1/2 acre fire torching near the Green Mountain and McMichael Draw areas close to the South Fork of Spread Creek. The fire appears to have been smoldering for several days before detection and any information on the fire's cause can be shared to 307-739-5424
