Mat-Su Borough Emergency Services Director Ken Barkley says the McKinley Fire has burned 51 homes, 3 businesses, and approximately 80 outbuildings.
The Swan Lake Fire is still 20% contained and acreage is at around 144,132.
The estimated size of the fire has been reduced to 1,543 acres, a decrease of almost 700 acres. The reduced acreage is due to better mapping. The fire is 15% contained.
Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District and Anchorage School District made the determination as air quality spiked to the "unhealthy" range.
