Trickey Fire contained in Two Rivers

Alaska Division of Forestry & Fire Protection (DOF) firefighters have secured a 50-foot wide perimeter around the Trickey Fire (#077). The 1.26-acre fire was reported late in the afternoon Wednesday near Mile 21 Chena Hot Springs Road. An aggressive response from DOF including engines and helitack from Fairbanks, a squad from Delta Junction, BLM Alaska Smokejumpers and a water tender from Steese Area Volunteer Fire Department knocked down the fire late in the evening. Fairbanks area resources, including the helicopter and smokejumpers were released from the fire last night. The squad of DOF firefighters from Delta remained overnight. Mop up operations are underway today as firefighters extinguish hotspots lingering in jackstraw piles of downed trees. Firefighters are expected to complete their work today. The fire will be placed into monitor status until it is declared out.
