A Beaver floatplane lands Tuesday on a lake near Bettles as the Evansville wildfire, northwest of Fairbanks, burns. This year's wildfire season in Alaska is less than 52,000 acres short of being the third-worst fire season since 1950, fire managers said Thursday. Fanned by a long stretch of dry hot weather, fires throughout the state have burned 3,173,218 acres, said fire information spokesman Chris Rogers.
