July 25th Update for the Clear Fire

Clear Fire
News - 07/25/2022

 Size: 72,171 acres

Location: 6 miles west of Anderson, Alaska 
Completion: 71% Personnel: 431 
Start Date: June 21, 2022 Cause: Natural, Lightning 
Fuels: A mix of tundra, brush, hardwood, and black spruce  

 

 

Summary: Today's weather forecast calls for higher temperatures and lower humidities. As a result, there is some potential for limited fire activity within the fire's perimeter, and some smoke may be visible today. 

 

Weather: Expect a generally sunny day with cumulus clouds forming in the afternoon. Temperatures will reach a high of 75F, relative humidity at 26%, and east-southeast winds at 8-10 mph, and gusts up to 16 mph. The potential for precipitation is 0%.  

 

Operations: The north and east fire perimeters are both under patrol status. Firefighters are working on fire suppression repair in these areas. Fire suppression repair is necessary to repair disturbances caused by hand and dozer firelines, staging areas, safety zones, and drop points created during fire suppression efforts. 

 

Three hot shot crews will continue work along the fire's southern flank today. They are steadily extending the fireline to the south and west. Fire managers project that this work will be complete in several days. 

 

A Temporary Flight Restriction remains in place over the fire area. All non-mission aircraft and drones must avoid the area outlined in the TFR for the safety of aircraft supporting the Clear Fire and firefighters on the ground. Information on the TFR is posted at https://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_2_6281.html.
