This half acre fire borders the Caribou Targhee National Forest and is located up the Mosquito Creek Drainage on the Jackson Ranger District. Interagency helicopter 35 HX has delivered 2 firefighters and will bring another 3 in to help fully suppress this fire burning in a mixture of shrub and timber. A small column of smoke might be visible from the valley floor and for those commuting over Teton Pass to and from Jackson.  With the absence of heavy smoke experienced the last few days, fire managers remain vigilant in detecting smoke and any new fire activity from the storms over the area last week. If you like to keep an eye on the smoke activity both locally and nationally, visit the NOAA Smoke Map. Cause is undetermined currently and lightning is suspected.
