Current Fire Information

Following several thunderstorms, lightning has ignited ten wildfires in Denali National Park and Preserve.

Alaska wildland fire managers work together to protect values, keep landscapes healthy, and ensure Alaskans, visitors, and firefighters stay safe and informed. As the wildland fire protection agency for the area, the Alaska Fire Service - Tanana Zone is working closely with the National Park Service to monitor the fires. The fires are burning in a limited protection area. Fire managers are monitoring the fires as they take their natural course, however they will take measures to protect life or property if necessary.

Fire in the boreal forest of Alaska is an essential process that restores ecosystem health and helps to maintain species diversity.
