undefined

Pushed by strong winds, a wildfire burning northwest of Fairbanks was moving closer Tuesday evening to a subdivision of more than a dozen homes and the trans-Alaska oil pipeline, according to a fire official. The fire began May 30 on the north side of the Chatanika River. By Tuesday, it had moved to within about 2 1/2 miles of the Hayes Creek Subdivision and less than five miles from the pipeline. Over 500 firefighters, aided by firefighting aircrafts, are fighting the fire.

Smoke

Smoke from forest fires obscures this view of Cathedral Mountain in Denali National Park. Currently there are wild fires burning from as far north as the Brooks Range to as far south as the Kenai Peninsula. In 2004, over 6 Million acres burned in Alaska, and Alaska residents are a bit worried to see a repeat of last year’s intense fire season.
