Fire Danger Increases in Grand Teton
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 31, 2018
The fire danger rating for Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and Teton Interagency Dispatch Area has increased to high.
The potential for fire activity has increased due to normal summer curing of vegetation combined with hot temperatures and dry, windy afternoons. But there are no fire restrictions in place at this time.
Officials say that visitors have abandoned over 40 campfires in Grand Teton National Park or Bridger-Teton National Forest so far this summer. Campers should be mindful that they could be held liable for suppression costs if their campfire becomes a wildfire.
