No way i would drive that highway.
It’s way too scary.
Huge flames from the Swan Lake Fire were visible from the Sterling Highway Sunday night.
Christina Johnstone was driving from Cooper Landing to Sterling when she captured this video.
Kenai Peninsula Borough officials say if you don’t need to drive on the highway — don’t.
Alaska is on fire too. We really need all God fearing Christians to PRAY for our home. pic.twitter.com/ipYAZf5sRO— molly hibbler (@mollyhibbler) August 27, 2019
Some people report having to turn around from a wilderness tour because the smoke is so bad and the fires are burning like crazy. Yes in Anchorage, residents were advised to stay indoor due to bad air quality.
Some even had to cancel their Alaskan vacations due to the fires.

• #Alaska has been experiencing record-breaking wildfires for months. With lightning igniting new fires, the “official” fire season was extended to Sep-15.https://t.co/HuuDZJfEef
Others take it to the point and blame the current idiotic politics in Alaska: For those of you who thought cutting the ferry service to some of our communities was a good idea, now do you understand how crucial any highway system is to the economy and every day life? Both are Alaskans highways we all depend on.
I grew up in a small mountain town in Alaska and it is the most gorgeous place on earth. A forest fire is now only 2 miles away from the town i grew up in and my parents are on a evacuation notice.

In overall, those Alaskan wildfires burn out of control and they are a threat for anybody living around. Those flames are way too close to those cars! I’m shocked because officials aare constantly saying they want to protect the public from harm!
Meanwhile, forests are burning across the world.
Let’s hope for many that these Alaskan fires will by contained in a few days.
