An affiliate of the Germany-based industrial giant Siemens is offering to build an LNG plant near Wasilla and transport the gas it processes there to Fairbanks at no cost to the Interior Gas Utility – if the IGU board of directors agrees to a long-term LNG-sales contract. Officials with Siemens Government Technologies outlined the proposal to the IGU board during a special meeting Tuesday.


The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Board of Education approved a proposal Monday to keep elementary and high school class sizes from getting any bigger next year. The school board’s action also means about 19 teachers won’t be getting pink slips next week after all.

Firefighters mopped up the remains of a 250-acre wildfire Sunday that busted out two days earlier in a largely residential area near Delta Junction.

Updated: Alaska Forestry Division officials said Saturday they no longer believe the Delta Junction-area wildfire now called the North Eielson Fire was caused by a tree blown over onto a powerline. The cause is under investigation.

About a dozen State Forestry Division firefighters from around the Interior and personnel from local fire departments initially responded to a 30-acre wildfire in a residential area in Delta Junction this afternoon.
