Third Moose Creek Area Fire In A Month 

The Division of Forestry in Tazlina responded early Sunday morning, June 26th, to a call about a possible fire in the Moose Creek area in Glennallen. 

State Public Information Officer Sam Harrell, of the Alaska Wildland Fire Information Center, told the Journal on June 26th:

"Forestry received a phone call of smoke in the area, responded and discovered the fire and extinguished it." 

He said Tazlina Forestry used two engines on the fire. The fire was 100% contained and controlled, with a secure perimeter, after it was soaked with water by DNR. 
 
There have been two previous fires in the same general location on the "Old Dump Road" area near Moose Creek in less than a month. The first fire – known as "173" by the State of Alaska – started on June 3rd and was stopped at .2 acres. The second fire in that area ("174"), also began on June 3rd, and reached .5 acres in size. 

This third fire ("382") was reported on June 25th and was put out at 1/10th of an acre.

Tazlina Forestry dispatch refused to comment on whether the three fires were related in any manner.
