Thursday Update Hotshot Crews On Standby For Swan Lake Fire

first_imgFire managers with the Division of Forestry are working collaboratively with refuge personnel to manage the fire to reduce future wildland fire hazards and enhance wildlife habitat. The fire is located in an area where no values are threatened or where the likelihood of fire impact to values has been mitigated. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As fire managers continue to monitor the Swan Lake Fire, the Pioneer Peak Hotshots and Gannett Glacier Fire Crews are on standby and ready to assist with the 6,951 acre fire north of Sterling when necessary.Aerial photo taken 6/13/19The Fire was estimated at 6,951 acres after a reconnaissance flight Wednesday evening, nearly doubling in size since the previous estimate the night before. Miller: “We did this to minimize the amount of folks that are back there, we had some sightseers going back there to get a closer look. We also want to make sure that any of the firefighters traveling back and forth have a safer route.” Steve Miller with the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge: “We are still just monitoring the fire. What we do now have is a crew that if we do determine that we need to do some suppression activities we can, we have not actively suppressed this fire at all, but we have people setup. Right now it is moving in the best possible direction it can move. The crews are just in case it moves towards one of the existing fire breaks we can either burn off an existing fire break and stop it from heading in a certain direction. We just now have a crew in place to do that.”  Questions or requests for copies of the closure order or maps should be directed to the Refuge at (907) 262-7021. People with  recreational-related questions should contact the Refuge visitor center at (907) 260-2820. The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge has closed the Mystery Creek Road, East Fork Moose River and Enstar Pipeline right-of-way which are north of the Sterling Highway along the eastern edge of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The closure will remain in effect through July 11. Most of the new growth was to the northwest and northeast away from the Sterling highway and 5 ½ miles from the community of Sterling. Sarah Saarloos, with the Division of Forestry: “It continues to burn in that limited protection area of the refuge. The fire burned West into that 2017 East Fork Fire star, so there was movement to the northwest and northeast, similar to the pattern we saw yesterday. We didn’t see any movement South towards the highway so it’s still 2.7 miles North of the Sterling Highway.” The Sterling Highway visibility warning is still in effect around Mile 68 and 75. Motorists are advised to slow down and use caution driving through the fire area due to heavy smoke.last_img read more

Iran and Russia sign deal for delivery of S300 surfacetoair missile systems

first_imgRussia and Iran have signed a contract for Moscow to supply Tehran with the long-overdue S-300 surface-to-air missile systems, said a top official of a Russian defence conglomerate on Monday.Sergei Chemezov, chief executive of Russian state-owned defence conglomerate Rostec, said Russia had agreed to finally deliver the long-overdue missile systems it had in 2007 committed to supply under an $800-million deal, reported Press TV citing Russian state-run RIA news agency.Moscow refused to deliver the systems to Tehran in 2010 on the pretext that the agreement was covered by the fourth round of the United Nations Security Council sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme. The resolution bars sale of hi-tech weapons to Tehran.Following Moscow’s refusal to deliver the systems, Iran filed a complaint against the relevant Russian arms firm with the International Court of Arbitration in Geneva.In April this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted a previous ban on the delivery of the S-300 to Iran.Iranian Defence Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said in mid-August “all changes” made to the S-300 system by the Russians over the years would be implemented on the equipment to be delivered to Iran.last_img read more
