The Caribou Lake Fire, 25 miles northeast of Homer, is still 20 percent contained. Today, Forestry officials announced a 4 acre increase in the size of the fire from 900 to 904 acres.
Minimal fire growth is expected over the next several days as the predicted cloud cover will help to moderate fire activity. Around 80 people are fighting the fire on the ground and in the air.
The Alaska Division of Forestry asks hunters in Caribou Lake to please stay away from the fire area.
