ANCHORAGE - The Bureau of land Management on Wednesday lifted its burn ban for Interior Alaska in concert with a similar burn ban lifted by state. The temporary ban was issued Aug. 7, and covered BLM managed public lands in the Tanana Valley and the Copper River Valley.
The public is now permitted to build, maintain or use fire outside developed campgrounds in the listed game management areas. BLM fire officials caution the public to continue to use fire responsibly because of recent dry conditions and current active wildland fires.
