I get four to seven bears in my yard each year and I never have had to kill one for pleasure . When I look at these bears I see a senseless murder not a grate sportsman. Now if he killed the bear with a knife I might have some respect for the hunter

Two blazes -- the #SockeyeFire  and #CardStreetFire  -- have swept across Southcentral Alaska this week, burning through thousands of acres of land, destroying homes, and displacing hundreds of residents.

On Thursday, officials confirmed that 26 houses were destroyed in the Sockeye fire: http://bit.ly/1MPPXUN

Meanwhile, the Kenai Peninsula's Card Street Fire tripled in size overnight: http://bit.ly/1IRH6RB

And those aren't the only fires crews are battling: http://bit.ly/1BmukLp

Yep. My brother evacuated his house on Long Lake, just on the outskirts of Willow. Not that there's anything there to begin with. He moved much of his gear to the center of the lake opposite his boat dock.

Alaska Dispatch News offers news, features and commentary from the Last Frontier.
Introduction

Whether reporting on powerful oil companies or on residents who live far from the urban centers where decisions are made, Alaska Dispatch's goal is to take an unflinching look at the state, from its massive riches to its abject poverty, and tell these stories to Alaskans and to the world.
