Where to get more information:
Piney Ranger District
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.

The Forest Service is still patrolling our old fires for hot spots and will probably continue to do that until the snow flies. The Buck, Fisherman, Rim and Sacajawea fires still are being watched, but are under control. We had one new small fire up the Green River, the Muhr fire, over the weekend due to an unattended campfire. It only got to about 1/2 acre in size and is controlled.
There are currently no restrictions on campfires, although we suggest if you don't need one, please don't build one, or be very careful if you do. All trails, campgrounds and roads are open. There is some smoke haze due to the Green Knoll fire up by Jackson, but not too bad our way.
Folks planning on hiking the Winds are still encouraged to come. At present, things are looking good and the mountains are beautiful and the fishing is great. Click here for John Ross's fishing hatch report from Two Rivers Emporium in Pinedale.
