McGrath Area Fire Threatening Primary Residences

The lightning caused Broken Snowshoe fire near McGrath has consumed more than 22,500 acres. The fire began on May 25, and is now threatening primary residences, cultural resources and private property.  The blaze is on Native Corporation land with high timber value.  Dry fuels and almost no rain have made it a difficult fire to fight.
