Multple Structure Fire in North Pole

Early this evening at approximately 7pm North Pole Fire Department received the call of a large structure fire.

Upon arrival on Durango Trail in North Pole off of the Old Richardson Highway the Fire Department found significant fire to multiple structures surrounding a residence.

Due to the multiple structures on fire and the limited amount of personnel every truck in the Borough was summoned to help fight the fire.

According to North Pole Fire Captain, “We’re battling multiple structures, a lot of junk yard type material and it’s creating challenges for our people. Right now we have almost every Department in the Borough here with at least one truck and personnel.”

At this point it’s not known what started the fire, but according to family on scene the family may have been burning grass around the area.

No injuries have been reported in the incident at this point.

The Newscenter will have more when information becomes available.
