Current Fire Information
There are currently two lightning-ignited fires burning in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Park and Preserve. The Trout Fire started May 24. The Weshrinarin Creek Fire started July 13.
As the wildland fire protection agency for the area, the BLM Alaska Fire Service is working closely with the National Park Service to monitor the fires. Federal land managers have opted to let the fires take a natural course, as fire in the boreal forests of the preserve is a natural process that restores ecosystem health and wildfire habitat. Agency managers will take measures to protect life or property as needed. There are no threats to structures at this time.
The Preserve is open. Click on the link below for more information:
