Pilots asked to use caution

Pilots flying in airspace around a wildfire are asked to assume that a temporary flight restriction is in place for five miles around the fire, below 5,000 feet. Aircraft intrusions can cause aerial fire-fighting operations to be halted until the airspace has been cleared. Pilots also are encouraged to report anything that appears to be a new fire to the nearest FAA Flight Service Station or to the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center at (907) 356-3670. For more information, call Maggie Rogers at (907) 356-5511.
