The Pacific Creek fire is a lightning caused fire located along Pacific Creek within the Teton Wilderness of the Blackrock Ranger District. A local outfitter, horseback riding in the area, saw a small column of smoke and reported the fire. Firefighters determined the fire had a low spread potential and because the fire is located within the Teton Wilderness, will implement a suppression strategy by way of Minimum Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST).  MIST requires a minimum amount of forces and actions necessary to effectively achieve the fire management protection objectives consistent with land and resource management objectives as prescribed for the Teton Wilderness.
