Fire danger increases in Teton are


JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Agency fire managers say the fire danger is increasing in northwestern Wyoming and they're asking the public to use caution while recreating outdoors.

Managers track fire danger by monitoring both weather conditions and the moisture in trees and other vegetation.

The fire danger is currently rated as moderate but will continue to rise with warmer and drier weather.

Firefighters suppressed two human-caused fires this week on the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

With the Fourth of July holiday approaching, fire managers also remind the public that fireworks are not permitted in Grand Teton National Park, on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, in Teton or Sublette counties or on state lands.
