Its not a large bunch of folks at the KNWR that deal with wildland fires, just a small core group. They bring in firefighter teams from various parts of Alaska and the lower 48 as needed. The refuge manages half of the Kenai Peninsula with the Chugach National Forest for the other half so theres a lot of country to cover, but they rely on resources that can move around the state as fire fighting priorities crop up. Some of the folks for the Glacier Creek fire were from interior Alaska and when that fire died down they moved onto the next most important in the state.
Drove to Homer today and saw 6 moose including a pretty darn nice bull. Doesnt really mean much, but it was a good sign. That was 15C. Haven't seen a whole lot of moose up in 15B lately to tell you the truth.
