The Clear Space Force Station, which detects ballistic missile attacks, is on the verge of evacuation after wildfires spread across Alaska

WILDFIRE activity in Alaska has prompted evacuation orders in several communities, including one near Clear Space Force Station – one of America’s ballistic warning radars.

Officials have expressed concern about hot, dry and windy conditions that could fan the blazes as the days go by.

Over 30 buildings were threatened by the Minto Lake Fires Monday, said Jonathan Ashford of the Fire Information Center.

As of Sunday, officials recommended evacuation for residents north of the Chatanika River and west of the jetty.

It’s not clear how many people lived in the area and were evacuated, Ashford said.

As of Monday morning, the fire has grown to more than 9,200 acres.

A structural assessment is planned at a subdivision east of the fire to focus on protection and preparedness, Ashford said.

“They’re going in right now as a precaution to do some assessments in this community to see what, if anything, needs to be done because the fire is progressing east along Washington Creek at this north end,” he added.

The Clear Fire started last week with lightning in the community of Anderson, Denali County and has grown to over 9,500 acres as of Monday.

Denali Borough Clerk Amber Renshaw said about 43 people live in the area recommended for evacuation, but many in the area use the properties as second homes or cabins.

Renshaw said it was confirmed as of Monday morning that only one person had been evacuated, while others likely remained in their homes.
