The team is looking forward to working with the community, as it continues the effort to meet fire management objectives. It has been three days since the fire area received significant rainfall. With continued warm and dry conditions, fire behavior may start to increase with most of the heat and smoke in isolated pockets in the interior and on the northern fire edge. Crews continue to mop-up and secure the southeast corner of the fire. Firefighters are not currently working on the north side of the Chatanika River but structure protection equipment, such as sprinklers and hoses, are in place if needed. Firefighters are scouting for heat on the south side of the river, north of the fire. 07162019_update_shovel-creek_final.pdf7-16-finalsmoke.pdfUpdated: Jul-16 8:48AMShovel Creek Fire Update - July 15, 201907152019_update_shovel-creek_final.pdf7-15-final.pdfUpdated: Jul-15 9:20AMCampfire Closure Order RescindedCamp_ClosureRescinded.pngClosure Map.pdfUpdated: Jul-15 8:13AMCampfire ClosureDue to extreme wildfire danger across much of Alaska, current wildfire activity around the state, and limited resources available to respond to new wildfire starts, the Alaska Division of Forestry is restricting all campfires on state, private and municipal lands within the following boroughs and geographical regions effective immediately.DNR Press Release - State forestry issues campfire restrictions across much of Alaska Final_Page_1.pngUpdated: Jul-09 10:02AMSmoke Respite Room at FMH Open 24 Hours a DayJuly 7, 2019The Fairbanks Memorial Hospital has a "Smoke Respite" room available at 1650 Cowles Street.
