Fire Management staff at Denali National Park and Preserve are planning to burn debris consisting of trees and brush beginning Tuesday, February 19 and continuing through Saturday, February 23, weather conditions permitting. The piles are at the Parker Cabin, which is located on Moose Creek approximately 7.5 miles east of the Kantishna airstrip and 5 miles north of the Denali Park Road. The material being burned is from hazard fuel reduction (fire protection) around the historic cabin.

Smoke may be visible in the area from aircraft and the George Parks Highway.

NPS Fire Management staff will be monitoring the burning on site. The piles are expected to burn for three to four days.
