State Scaling Back on Response to McGrath Wildfire

The state is scaling back its response to the big wildfire burning near McGrath. The over 25,000-acre Broken Snowshoe fire has slowed thanks clouds and high humidity in the western interior. State Fire Information officer Andy Alexandrou says the favorable weather has enabled fire crews to make good progress in recent days along the fires edge near McGrath.
