Fire Restrictions Lifted In The B-T Forest
Jackson, Wy – Recent rains combined with cooler temperatures have allowed federal land managers to lift partial fire restrictions in Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest starting tomorrow (Wednesday).
Rains have lowered the fire danger on the forest to moderate.
The fire danger on the forest had been rated either high or extreme
since late June.
Mary Cernicek is spokeswoman for the Bridger-Teton National
Forest. She says that rain gauges around the forest have recorded
from three-quarters of an inch to 2 inches of rain in the past
But Cernicek says there's still a danger from wildfires.
The Forest Service and the Park Service say that people must
attend their campfires at all times.
