If you’re driving north over the next few weeks, don’t be alarmed if you see smoke near the entrance of Denali National Park. Kris Fister, spokeswoman for the Park, says that fire management personnel will be monitoring the burning of a debris pile, consisting of trees and brush until December 15th, as weather permits. The debris pile is east of the park airstrip. The material was gathered after being removed from around structures and maintenance projects in the Park. Fister says smoke may be visible from the Parks as well as from the air.
