A fire near Eklutna Lake in Southcentral Alaska was only burning on about 30 acres until Sunday when Fire Information Officer Pete Buist says the blaze gave firefighters some trouble, making a significant run to the Northwest and showed fire activity seldom seen in Southcentral.
The fire is estimated at about 300 acres currently. Buist says a total of four additional Type Two Village Fire Crews are heading to the fire.
He says about 70 firefighters will fight the blaze.
