Teton County bars interface wood shingles and shakes

JACKSON, Wyo. (KIFI) - The Teton County, Wyoming Board of County Commissioners has approved an amendment that will bar wood shingles and shakes within the wildland-urban interface on new construction.

Current code allows for wood shingles and shakes that have been treated with fire retardant, but experts say that is still a concern within the interface areas. The Teton Area Wildland Protection Coalition and Jackson Hole Fire-EMS suggested eliminating the material from new construction.

The commission voted 3-2 to approve the amendment, which takes effect March 1, 2021.
