2019, July - Southcentral Alaska Area #1
The Malaspina Fire was one of several fast-moving fires that swept through populated areas. Smokejumpers deployed from Fairbanks, joining hotshot crews and engine crews to gain the upper hand and stop the fire's progress. Mel Tenneson, pictured at lower right, returned to Alaska in his 34th and final smokejumper season - 17 years in Boise and 17 years in Alaska.
