The Department of Natural Resources plans to again use the winter months to clear fire breaks aimed at protecting Fairbanks from catastrophic wildfires. Fairbanks area fire management officer Robert Schmol says one area being targeted was identified as a risk during the massive “Boundary Fire” in 2004. Schmol says the fire break project off Old Murphy Dome Road has been in the works for 3 years.
