Officials overseeing the Tyonek wildfire on the west side of Cook Inlet said today that most firefighting personnel were being released from the fire, with some of them headed to the Kenai Peninsula to work on the Funny River fire.

The Tyonek fire started May 19th and burned between the villages of Tyonek and Beluga.  It is currently mapped at 1,906 acres and is considered 100 percent contained.

A total of 112 personnel were still assigned to Tyonek this morning but most were scheduled to leave by the end of the day.
