 FORT WAINWRIGHT- You can add Fort Wainwright to the list of places where the cutting of firewood has been banned because of the hot, dry conditions.

 

Officials say that all firewood cutting areas on base, located within the Fairbanks North Star Borough, have been closed.

 

All borough firewood-cutting areas were closed last week to personal-use and commercial logging. The state also has suspended operations at its wood-cutting areas.

 

Fort Wainwright officials say in a release that that wood cutting areas at the Donnelly Training Area will remain open unless the state Division of Forest Office closes facilities in the Delta Junction area.
