Roosevelt Fire

Nov 17, 2018
The Roosevelt fire in the Bridger-Teton National Forest started on September 15th 2017. The fire burned over 60,000 acres and destroyed over 55 homes in the Hoback Ranches subdivision. U.S. Forest Service Investigators concluded that the fire was caused by an abandoned campfire. Landslides are a common concern in this area, and much more so since the fire.
Following a wildfire, the threat of landslides or mass wasting increases significantly. Therefore, public access to some of the most unstable and dangerous areas will remain restricted until conditions become more stable and safe.
