East End Fire

Smokejumpers protecting cabin, Native allotment from East Fork Fire north of St. Mary’s

Smokejumpers anticipate having a few days of work ahead of them to ensure the East Fork Fire won’t impact the allotment. Additionally, this will allow fire personnel to be in the area if they are needed to move to other allotments and cabins that need protection from the 2,000-acre fire burning in the Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge. This lightning-caused fire started Tuesday.
