FAIRBANKS- A new wildfire is keeping Fairbanks-based fire crews busy.
The Caribou Creek Fire had reached 350 acres Sunday.
The fire is on state land about 24 miles east of the Stuart Creek 2 fire that occupied crews much of the summer.
Interagency Management Team spokesman Jim Schwarber says the fire is in a full protection area. Multiple air tankers and smoke jumpers attacked the flames Sunday.
The cause of the fire is unknown but no lightning was reported in the area.
