Favorable weather conditions over much of eastern and central Alaska allowed firefighters to complete their work to fully suppress the Hadweenzic Fire (#569), the last staffed fire in the Upper Yukon Zone that covers 51.9 million acres in northeast Alaska. Firefighters returned to Fairbanks for reassignment. Fire Managers will continue to monitor unstaffed fires in the Upper Yukon Zone by air, and will immediately mobilize firefighters if needed.
This will be the final daily update for the Upper Yukon Zone unless notable activity occurs. Any future updates will be made available on akfireinfo.com, or please call the Alaska Interagency Joint Information Center at 907-356-5511.
