The Alaska Division of Forestry and Fire Protection (DOF) has been taking advantage of favorable conditions to continue burning piles of black spruce slash cut in recent years as part of wildfire mitigation programs for the community of Anderson and the Fairbanks North Star Borough. DOF’s Fairbanks Area Forestry office has burned over 900 piles, each about 10 feet around and four feet tall, completing their work near Milepost 4 of Goldstream Road in two parcels north of the road: one 16-acre parcel north of Clifden and Molly roads, and a 10-acre parcel south of Ballina Road. Firefighters have extinguished and mopped up the burned piles and will continue to monitor the area to ensure that nothing rekindles.
