Firefighters head to Chena Hot Springs road

Firefighters from the state Division of Forestry are in the area of 17 mile Chena Hot Springs Road. A tanker and scoop plane were seen dropping water and retardant, along with a helicopter. Newscenter 11's Darryl Lewis is on scene, and we will have more information as it becomes available. State Troopers closed the road and told people to evacuate the area. Firefighters were reportedly trying to keep flames from getting to the Two Rivers Lodge. Thanks to J. Scott Stewart for these photos.
