Live – McKinley Fire Sunday evening update with Alaska’s Incident Commander and Chief of Fire and Aviation Norm McDonald. Containment has increased again to 95% as crews continue to mop up and coordinate with excavators, mechanical feller bunchers and engine crews to stabilize the area and strengthen containment lines. Very large ash pits remain an ongoing issue for firefighters and homeowners. With changes in the weather trees will continue to easily topple over with winds as light as 5-10mph.
