CARIBOU-TARGHEE NATIONAL FOREST — The multi-year Red Creek prescribed fire project continues apace in Caribou-Targhee National Forest (CTNF) on Thursday, CTNF announced on Facebook.

Burns will be executed just north of Highway 31 near Pine Creek Pass.

“Forest Service Trail #215 (Spooky) will act as the western perimeter for the burn unit and the eastern perimeter will be the top of Pine Creek Pass as weather conditions allow,” CTNF said.

Stormy weather might delay operations later this week.

“The public is asked to stay out of the area during active burning operations,” CTNF said. “During operations, firefighters will be located along Highway 31. For the safety of our firefighters, we ask individuals heading up Pine Creek Pass to use caution and drive slowly. Short delays may be possible.”

Fire operations closed Pine Creek Pass to vehicles last week.
