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.

Our fire situation remains about the same on the southern end of the Bridger-Teton National Forest with no new fires to report. 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.
The Interagency Fire Information Center is open up in Jackson for fire questions daily from 7 am until 10 pm now, with ten phone lines. 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 now regarding how fires may affect your planned trip. Their web site is: www.wyomingtourism.org.
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. Folks planning on hiking the Winds, Gros Ventres or Wyoming Range are still encouraged to come. It's business as normal for us down here, as we keep a cautious eye to the north. At present, things are looking good and the mountains are beautiful and the fishing is great.
