Natural fireworks kick up Alaskan wildfires over holiday weekend

Fire activity picked up across the state over the holiday weekend. Lightning strikes started most of them, but a few were human-caused, including one discovered in Fairbanks yesterday at the corner of the Steese Highway and Johansen Expressway. Fire information officials say someone left a burn pile of pallets and heavy timbers unattended.
