Location: 25 miles east of Delta
Start Date: June 16
Cause: Lightning
Size: 10,000 acres
Number of Personnel: 91

General Information:
Movement of the fire moderated Friday resulting in minimal fire growth. Planned actions for today will include: Continuation of point protection around the homes and other values at risk in the immediate Healy Lake area, preparing structures at risk and initiating any burnout operations around those structures should it become necessary. In the village area, firefighters will scout the areas around and north of the fire for locations to construct a contingency line in the event that line is needed. They will also assess structures and other values at risk for future prep work. To the west of the Tanana River and east of the Cummings Road, crews and engines will secure any spot fires, mopping up the spots 100%. The largest spot fire so far was approximately 4 acres. Spots will become visible to firefighters as hot and dry conditions continue.
The Healy Lake Fire is being managed by an Alaska Type 3 Team, under the command of Neil Charlie.
