Munson Creek Fire Advances Past Control Line

Isaac Solomon
Alaska DNR DOF

Wind has pushed a wildfire near Chena Hot Springs Resort east of Fairbanks, past a control line, and closer to the resort and other area cabins and homes As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, firefighters have been forced to retreat from the advancing 9 thousand acre Munson Creek Fire and are focused now on protecting resort and other area structures.

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.
