Firefighters complete structure preparation along Poorman Road

Firefighters completed structure preparation for approximately 33 structures along the Poorman Road area. At this time, there are no immediate threats to structures near the Camp Creek and Donut Fires. Crews will continue to monitor fire activity and assess structures as needed.

Structure preparation includes clearing nearby vegetation, installing pumps and hoses and a sprinkler system that can be turned on around buildings as the fire nears, and identifying any hazards around those structures. Hazards may include hazardous materials near the structure, a pile of firewood, or a dead tree that could topple over.

  • Camp Creek Fire (#352): Current estimated acreage is 57,750. Fire behavior included active running in some areas. The fire was active to the east and southeast moving into an area burned in 2005.
  • Donut Fire (#335): Current estimated acreage is 60,925. The fire continues to grow to the north into an area burned in 2015. Fire activity includes slow backing and creeping in the area burning the residual vegetation from previous burn.  
  • Sunset Fire (#369): Current estimated acreage remains at 3,002. This fire is still in monitor status with minimal fire activity expected. The fire ran into natural barriers with a bog on the east side, a creek along the west side, and the Yukon River to the south.
