As I write this, the fire's NW perimeter is reported to be 4 1/2 miles from the Chena River and 7 miles from Chena Hot Springs Road at about Mile Marker 26. We are south of 21 Mile Chena Hot Springs Road.
Yesterday morning Fairbanks North Star Borough issued an evacuation 'watch' for our area. Be ready to go at a moment's notice!
By mid afternoon, the kennel was ready. Dog trucks and pick ups with crates were equipped to transport every SP dog, if needed. Box trailers were loaded with dog food, water, tethers, medical supplies and more. Open trailers had all our ATV's strapped aboard. Clothes, people food, computers and records were packed. The caravan was ready to head to Scotty and Bridgett's home west of Fairbanks.

The fire is still close by. Although the immediate danger has subsided, we remain on high alert.
