to report fires:
Callers are reminded that if they are using a cell phone, they may not get a local office when they dial 911. The best place to call for area fires is either the local Sheriff's office or the Bridger-Teton Fire Office. Be prepared to give a location of the smoke, your name, where you are calling from, and how they can get ahold of you again for more information if needed.

Open fire restrictions went into effect this morning at 8 am for the entire Sublette County, Bridger-Teton National Forest and BLM lands within the county. No open fires are allowed except for within campgrounds with provided fire grates. Campers in dispersed areas need to use liquid or gas fuel stoves only. Smoking is only allowed within an enclosed vehicle or building, in a campground (developed recreation site), or in a 3' area cleared of flammable material. Other restrictions apply for chainsaws and other activities which may create a spark or flame. Fire restrictions are posted at forest entrances, trails, and at District offices.
The Interagency Fire Information Center is open up in Jackson for fire questions daily from 7 am until 10 pm. You can get information, updated several times daily, online at the Teton Fires web site, www.tetonfires.com. If you need to talk with someone in person, call (307) 739-5577. We encourage people to check out the web site first to find the answers to your questions. You can also get information, updated several times daily, from the Wyoming Department of Tourism regarding how fires may affect your planned trip. Their web site is: www.wyomingtourism.org.
