Trooper Report Week of May 21, 2017

Location: Naukati

Type: Suspicious Fire
Dispatch Text:

UPDATE: Several witnesses and various members of the community came forward and provided information to AST regarding the suspicious fire which destroyed the community shelter in Nuakati on 5/20/2017. The shelter was constructed from red cedar, was three-sided and had a tin roof. A portion of the floor was bare earth while the other portion was wooden. The investigation determined that a fire pit was being utilized in the early afternoon hours by individuals from the community. The fire pit used at the time was on the dirt floor portion of the shelter. Those community members left after they believed they had properly extinguished the fire. Due to gusty winds, and multiple days of dry weather preceding the fire, the fire reignited and eventually reached the wooden floor of the building. By the time the fire was discovered by other community members, the shelter was totally engulfed and was ultimately destroyed by the fire. The community plans on rebuilding the structure.

AST would like to remind everyone to build fires away from all structures and other ignition sources. Completely and thoroughly extinguish all fires when no longer used or if they will be unattended.
