Smoke from fire in Fairbanks


Recommended Posts

Just landed in Fairbanks. Very smoky due to wildfires.  Started by lightning,  We were told they have had smoke for 2 weeks. Very little rain recently. Don’t know how much of the fire has been contained

While I am posting from a cruise ship I check the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner website daily. When we flew out on June 16th we were receiving smoke from a small fire north of Fairbanks and the fires near the community of Anderson (off the Parks Highway north of Healy) were starting.  And we were also receiving smoke from the tundra fires near St. Mary’s.


Alaska Fire Service has predicted a possible record season of acreage consumed by wild land fires.  Those of us who live there are preparing for a smoky summer.

Fires in Fairbanks, rock slides in Skagway, masks on the ships again. Oh geez, we picked Alaska this summer to stay away from all the troubles in the world! 😂
