Lake Clark National Park & Preserve Lifts Burn Restrictions update, July 9

Lake Clark National Park & Preserve Lifts Burn Restrictions

July 9, 2015

Port Alsworth, Alaska – Recent weather conditions have moderated fire danger enough that Lake Clark National Park has lifted burn restrictions, following the Alaska Division of Forestry’s cancellation of the burn closure for the area.

While campfires are allowed in the park and preserve, visitors should minimize impact using existing campfire rings or building their campfires on beaches or gravel bars where water and ice will wash evidence away. Always ensure fires are cold to the touch before leaving them.

Conditions can change rapidly, so wildland fire managers ask visitors and residents to stay informed of fire danger and conditions. We all have a hand in a safe fire season.

For statewide wildfire information, visit fire.ak.blm.gov or www.akfireinfo.com. For updated park information, visit www.nps.gov/lacl.
