While the winter was one for the record books, the hot summer months have begun to dry out much of the ignitable fuel prompting area officials from the Teton Interagency Fire Dispatch Center to raise the fire danger to “High”.
Smoke from several fires in the west have cascaded into Star Valley in recent days. Reports of fires in Montana, Idaho and Utah are all thought to be contributing to the smoggy conditions.
