The Pinedale Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest will be doing ignition for their Skyline Fuels Reduction Project beginning Thursday, May 13th evening on South Fortification. The prescribed burn is expected to continue through Saturday, May 15th. The purpose of the burn is to remove hazardous fuels within and around the wildland urban interface and to minimize the intensity of future wildfires in the area.

The fires are in the area of White Pine Ski Area, Sweeny Creek, Kelly Park, and Skyline Drive. The burn units are approximately 380 acres in size. Sweeney Road and Kelly Park will be closed to the public over the course of ignitions. Public information will be available at the Sweeny Creek and Kelly Park parking areas. For more information, call the Pinedale Ranger District at 307-367-4326 or visit
