6/24/19 12:20 PM Sterling Highway is very smoky

ADVISORY: The Sterling Highway is very smoky now. Please use caution when driving and keep headlights on at all times.

The Swan Lake Fire helibase, located along the Sterling Highway, is not only the bases for the incident helicopters, but the place from which other fire needs are filled. The helibase provides supplies for various areas around the fire, staging them at the helibase and then packaging them up for helicopter delivery.
