JACKSON, Wyo. — A stretch of warm, dry weather has prompted authorities in Fremont County to issue a red flag warning likely to last through the week as fire danger now ticks to “Very High”.
Wyoming Game and Fish Department have banned all open fires on its land within the Lander Region— Red Canyon, Ocean Lake, Sand Mesa, Whiskey Basin, Inberg/Roy, Chain Lakes, Morgan Creek and Red-Rim Daley Wildlife Habitat Management Areas (WHMAs), and Spence and Moriarity Wildlife Management Area; as well as the several Public Access Areas including Little Middle and North Fork Popo Agie, Luckey Pond and all Wind River access areas near Dubois.
“The effects of wildfire can conflict with the wildlife and wildlife habitat purposes of the Game and Fish Commission-owned lands. Therefore, the department has instituted the fire ban to follow suit with current Fremont County fire bans,” said Brian Parker, habitat and access supervisor.
A red flag warning has been issued for today for portions of Fremont, Lincoln, Sublette, and Sweetwater counties.
