The Sterling Highway remains closed at the “Y”,  the intersection of the Sterling Highway and the
Firefghters  gathering in Cooper Landing
Seward Highway.  Cooper Landing residents are at Level 2 SET, meaning they should be ready to go but are NOT evacuated.  If you are in Cooper Landing and live there, you can stay. If you are passing through Cooper Landing or anywhere east of there, you can go either east toward Anchorage or Seward, or west toward Soldotna.  BUT GET OFF THE HIGHWAY. There is a shelter open at Seward High School if you need a place to stay.

There is also a shelter open at the Soldotna Sports Center. Large animals can be kept at the Rodeo grounds near the Sports Center.  The City of Soldotna has opened Centennial and Swiftwater Campgrounds for those who are displaced.

The fire behavior appears to be calming down. A helicopter is currently doing a recon over the fire area to confirm the fire perimeter.  There are now close to 100 firefighters in Cooper Landing on the north side of the highway.
