Wildfires break record in Alaska

A record hectare of land in Alaska was burned down this month, evicting Americans from their homes, declining air quality, and taxing fire safety resources.

Authorities have already burned more than 1 million acres this weekend, the first time in history that the state has shown such a high level.

More than 300 wildfires have erupted in recent weeks as a result of unusually hot and dry climates caused by climate change.

The East Fork fire, which burned more than 165,000 acres[165,000 ha]and is currently the fifth-largest fire in the state, is one of more than 100 fires currently burning.

Prolonged growth seasons have increased the thickness of the tundra flora and led to an increase in wildfires in recent years, a reflection of some of the changes the state is experiencing due to climate change.

According to the International Arctic Research Center More than 2.5 hectares of land burned in the last two decades between 2001 and 2020.

The city of St. Mary’s, home to 600 people, accessible only by boat or jungle, near the mouth of the Yukon River, was hit by a fire this month.
