A U.S. Forest Service firefighter scouts the perimeter of a fire Thursday on a small island in the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge, about a mile south of the Juneau International Airport. Police reported flames and smoke coming from the area at about 2:30 a.m., according to Capital City Fire and Rescue. Firefighters determined that it presented no hazard to structures or property and, faced with difficult access, decided to let it burn out.
