Weekend storms brought substantial rain to Kenai Fjords National Park, moderating fire danger enough that park officials are lifting the burn closure.
While campfires are allowed in the park , visitors should minimize impact using existing campfire rings or building their campfires on beaches or gravel bars where water and ice will wash evidence away. Always ensure fires are cold to the touch before leaving them.
Conditions can change rapidly, so wildland fire managers ask visitors and residents to stay informed of fire danger and conditions. We all have a hand in a safe fire season.
