Current Fire Information
Lightning has sparked two small wildfires in the park.
The Noatak River fire is located north of the Noatak River and east of Narvakrak Lake. This fire was estimated at 300 acres burning in brush and tundra and exhibiting two to four foot flame lengths with 100 percent of the perimeter active. The fire does not pose an immediate threat to life or property, and it is burning in a “limited” fire management unit. Named the Noatak River Fire, it was discovered by a National Park Service ranger flying over the area. The closest structure is 20 miles downriver. The ranger also reported the two-acre Maiyumerak Creek Fire, located west of the mouth of Maiyumerak Creek, which had no smoke observed and is in monitor status. Find out more:
