After significant moderation of fire behavior on the three fires that make up the Poorman Complex, management of the complex downgraded to a smaller, Type 4 organization on Sunday. Baker River Hotshots remain on the incident to monitor fire behavior and support structure protection as needed.
Rainfall across the Poorman Complex has resulted in minimal fire growth and activity. Rain showers are forecasted for Sunday and Monday, which is expected to continue moderating fire behavior.
- Camp Creek Fire (#352): Currently estimated at 59,809 acres. Fire behavior is minimal after receiving .75 inches of rain. Structure preparation is complete in the Poorman Road area about 5 miles from the fire.
- Donut Fire (#335): Currently estimated at 65,621 acres. The fire is creeping into an area burned in 2015.
- Sunset Fire (#369): Estimated acreage remains at 3,002. This fire remains 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.
This is the final update for the Poorman Complex unless significant activity occurs. For information, contact the Alaska Interagency Joint Information Center at (907)356-5511 or email@example.com.
