Prescribed burns begin this week on BTNF
Fremont Ridge burn on Tuesday, Sept. 20
September 19, 2005

The Bridger-Teton National Forest will be igniting prescribed burns throughout the Forest this week, if weather conditions hold. The Forest anticipates lighting the Fremont 2 burn near Fremont Ridge on the Pinedale District on Tuesday, September 20.

Additionally, the Bridger-Teton hopes to ignite the Diamond L burn on the Buffalo District near Upper Uhl and Enyon draws on September 20 or 21. Smoke may be visible in the vicinity of these prescribed fires. For more information on these or the upcoming burns the Bridger-Teton has planned, visit, or call the fire information line at 307-739-5577.

Current fire danger on the BTNF is Moderate. There are no restrictions currently in effect, however forest users and hunters are asked to still be careful with campfires and warming fires, as wildfires can still occur.
