According to BTNF, Teton Interagency Fire Resources were able to treat approximately 48 acres of the 365-acre Grouse Mountain prescribed burn area, yesterday, Oct. 4. The unit is approximately 7-miles south of US Highway 26/287 in the vicinity of Grouse Mountain.

The Grouse Mountain prescribed fire unit is designed to restore whitebark pine habitat and study the effects of other treatments on the species.

Fire managers will be evaluating weather and fuels conditions today to assess if the unit is still within the parameters to continue ignitions.

Smoke will likely remain visible in the area for the next few days. BTNF and Teton Interagency Fire is asking the community to not report smoke sightings.

To report a wildfire, unattended or abandoned campfire please contact the Teton Interagency Dispatch Center at 307-739-3630. 181 illegal campfires have been discovered to date by Teton Interagency Fire.
