DENALI NATIONAL PARK - Wildfire smoke has created hazy conditions in Denali National Park.

The Park Service reports the 24,000-acre Bear Creek fire on the north end of the park came within three miles of the historic Roosevelt Cabin. Alaska Fire Service smoke jumpers were flown in Saturday and two more are arriving Monday to protect the cabin.
