Munson Creek Fire Reaches Chena Hot Springs

Alaska Division of Forestry

Firefighters remain focused on protecting Chena Hot Springs Resort and area cabins from the Munson Creek wildfire. The 24-thousand-acre lightning caused blaze about 50 miles east of Fairbanks made it to the resort property overnight, but as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports firefighters were well prepared.

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.
