Tanana Fires Persist


Recent rain slowed wildfire growth around the interior, but there are still nearly 2 hundred active blazes and over twenty staffed fires. The largest response is to a half million acre complex of fires near Tanana. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, managers expect suppression and demobilization to take weeks.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
