    I showed up at work this morning at MP 210 of the Parks Highway and there was a sign saying "PARKS HWY CLOSED AT MP 74."

    I thought that something big must have happened because the Parks Highway doesn't just close for any reason.

    "It initially covered about two acres, but within 11 hours had ballooned to 6,500 acres, according to the forestry division reports"

        They have their work cut out for them. That's a huge chunk of land.

          For a populated area (which this is) it's huge. However, Most of Alaska is unpopulated and this is a full order of magnitude smaller than most of our wildfires in the state. Luckily, I'm still 130 miles from the fire where I work at. There's a couple of big rivers and a mountain range between me and the fire.
