Beaver residents working to save perishables; state airlifting generator

Beaver residents are hustling to keep freezers full of salmon and other foods from thawing and spoiling. Electricity remains out in the village following Sunday’s power plant fire. Maryland Alexander, a health aid at the Beaver Clinic, says local people are doing their best to save perishables. The state of Alaska has delivered a large generator and other equipment to the village to restore community-wide electrical service. The aim is to have power restored by 8:00 p.m. this evening.
