Wildfires – Alaska

The Alaska Division of Forestry has called in over 200 firefighters from Washington to help contain multiple wildfires raging across Southcentral in a late-season flareup in drought-stricken parts of the State.

Fire officials on Monday went over the latest news for the Deshka Fire — currently burning around 2,000 acres along Nancy Lake Parkway — the McKinley Fire — burning steady at 3,000 acres, and compromising 50 structures — and the Swan Lake Fire on the Kenai Peninsula, which DOF spokesperson John See says has burned over 100,000 acres since it started back up on Sunday.
