2008 - FIRE NEAR ANCHORAGE SUBURB
In early July, a wildfire started in a homeless camp near Campbell Track. Eight Alaska Smokejumpers, stationed at Palmer Air Tanker Base, responded to the mutual aid incident. We joined Anchorage City and Alaska State Firefighters on scene. Municipal fire engines and portable pumps enabled us to stop the spreading flames and quickly control the fire.
