A thrown drive train from a truck ignited grass thatch and sagebrush on the National Elk Refuge at the junction of Warm Springs Road and the east side of Highway 89, south of the Grand Teton National Park entrance sign and north of Fish Hatchery Hill. Initial fire spread diminished when available fuels were consumed and winds calmed, so the fire was difficult to locate. Wildland fire responders from Teton Interagency Fire located the fire an hour after the initial report of smoke, and found the drive train (which was returned to the driver of the disabled truck) and the smoke. The fire was called out on July 13. More information at the National Elk Refuge website.
