Central Emergency Services

Alaska Division of Forestry / Alaska Division of Forestry

The Alaska Division of Forestry put out a small wildfire that started on Penny Lane between Soldotna and Sterling on Thursday night.

The fire started in a mobile home on Penny Lane, on the Soldotna side of Longmere Lake around 3:45 p.m. Thursday. Central Emergency Services responded, and the Alaska Division of Forestry got involved when the fire spread from the mobile home to the wildlands nearby. The fire began spreading toward nearby homes and buildings, including a 500-gallon fuel tank.

A trio of Soldotna residents helped fish something much more exciting than a fish out of East Mackey Lake on Tuesday — a Maule MX-7 single-engine plane on wheeled landing gear that crashed into the water.
