This small fire was detected late in the evening as a tree torched along the ridge line and making the flames visible to homeowners living in along the Snake River in Teton County. Teton interagency helicopter flew the fire and found a small 1/4 acre fire burning within a stand of heavy mixed timber. Two West Yellowstone Smokejumpers are suppressing the fire and will hike off the fire after is has been contained and controlled. The fire is a lightning start from the storm passing over the area later this last week.
