Current Fire Information
High to very high fire weather indices in the Upper Yukon along with lightning has increased fire activity in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. Due to the number of new fires in the area and resources at risk, a small Type 4 organization and fire fighters are working out of Coal Creek Camp near the wildfires. In order to allow the incident management team the use of the Coal Creek and Slaven’s facilities for fire suppression operations Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, Superintendent, Greg Dudgeon, has temporarily designated use of these facilities for fire operations and support personnel only. The public is advised that both Coal Creek and Slaven’s facilities will be in use by the incident management team to manage ongoing fires in the vicinity. Due to the potential for increased air traffic during suppression efforts, pilots flying in the area are advised to communicate their intentions on the Common Traffic Advisory Frequency.
