    We're lucky one of these fires hasn't swept through a community. The fire history on the peninsula shows burns pretty much every where but in the settled area. The Island Lake fire in 1970 ran through part of Nikiski. I look at Soldotna and can only imagine what a fire would do there. Especially accompanied by wind.

    You ever notice that one side of that interface always grows back faster, while the other continually recedes?

    I suppose an economic disaster would need to be declared, the way the commercial fisheries in Cook Inlet seem to do every other year or so, in order for funds to make it to small businesses...or maybe that is just a special deal for commercial fisherman? I guess if enough businesses are affected then an economic disaster will be declared.

    Well I'm happy to hear that.
    This is the first I've heard of it.
    I hope it is enough.
    My boss lives in Sterling and is taking extra time off to be home in case his family has to evacuate.

    Not much as it was a weak front, but it sure can't hurt. In reality it's gonna take several inches to make a big impact on this fire. But it's supposed to rain through Monday, so we'll see.

    Default "WILD FIRE" any impact on your hunting/fishing.

    The entire area is still closed to access. The only change to this map is that you can now float from the bridge to Sportsmans between 6am and 6pm. Sportsmans to the lake is still closed entirely.
