A wildfire is growing between the towns of Palmer and Sutton here in Alaska. At first report, it was at 10 acres, but the dry autumn and currently high winds have seen it expend to over 200 acres in less than 24 hours. Several fire hoses and water tankers, on site to fight the fire, froze over night.

Another wildfire, estimated at 350 acres in size, is burning in the Northwest part of the state near the community of Noorvik.
