Wildfires blazing near you
Wildfire near McGrath, AK
Thick smoke from this aggressive wildfire located near and on Appel Mt. across the Kuskokwim River from McGrath, Alaska. These 3 photos show thr proximity of the fire to one of McGrath's other "natural" risks, severe erosion that takes our roads and residential properties. See barrels along the edge of the riverbank and road, which get moved inward as we lose feet of land to the river.
