JACKSON – The closure of US 191/189 between Daniel Junction and Stinking Springs near Hoback Junction due to the Cliff Creek fire will continue until at least 4 p.m. today.

The fire burning in the Bridger-Teton National Forest north of Bondurant tripled in size Monday to 6,700 acres, and there is concern it could cross over the highway again in the Shoal Creek area.

Fire damage to the highway itself appears to be minimal so far, but the assessment is ongoing.
