Following several thunderstorms, fire managers are currently monitoring 13 lightning-ignited wildfires burning in remote areas of Denali National Park and Preserve. Currently the wildfires are not an immediate threat to park structures or sensitive resources. The Alaska Fire Service –Tanana Zone, the wildland fire protection agency for the area, is working closely with interagency managers from the National Park Service to a monitor the fires periodically from the air as they take their natural course. Firefighters will take measures to protect life and property as necessary.
